Tara Barnett Relief Fund

Our family, Tara & Piper, have lost their home and all of their belongings due to a gas leak that caused their house to explode. Although they were not home at the time of the explosion, Tara's roommate and best friend, Lisa, did not survive the accident. This is a tragic loss for them along with many others who loved Lisa dearly. We're asking family and friends to help lift them up & support them during this very difficult time. For more details, please read the news article linked below. Thank you all for your compassion, prayers, generosity, and kindness.

*Local donations can be dropped off at Telluride Mountain School and/or Alpine Bank Telluride
