Minturn Families in Need

Raised by 56 people in 22 days

Local families need help! With a recent structure fire exposing hazardous living conditions within their trailer park, several displaced Minturn families and individuals are in need of safe housing.

If you or anyone you know are able to help, please consider contributing and spreading the word. Funds are being raised to support getting these Eagle County locals into safe housing, but everyone knows that's not cheap in the Vail Valley. We're trying to raise money for immediate lodging needs as most of these families only have housing through April 2nd. Additionally; first, last and security deposit funds for a safe, long-term housing solution. 100% of proceeds will go to the Minturn Community Fund's Neighbors in Need program for the direct use by these displaced locals. The Minturn Community Fund will match all contributions up to a total of $5000.00!

The Town of Minturn, the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army met to review the progress to date on the temporary and long-term housing needs for the displaced Minturn families. With the amazing level of support received from the community, we're able to provide temporary lodging until Monday, April 16th. Efforts will then turn to funding long-term housing options with the remaining funds going toward first/last/deposit efforts.

Thank you again to everyone for your contributions. We've currently raised $5,636 through the gofundme campaign and with the matching funds from the Minturn Community Fund we're at a total of $10, 636.
