Carlos and his brother, Alan, have been instrumental members of the Niwot High School theatre family. Unfortunately, their home was struck by disaster early in the morning on March 31, 2019. An electrical fire destroyed their living room and kitchen. The city of Longmont has condemned the home until the repairs can be completed. The funds raised will help the Martinez family (parents, Alan, Carlos, and their little sister) pay for lodging, food, and rebuilding costs.
