Seeing horrifying images of the Lower North Fork Fire consume homes and destroy lives often inspires Coloradans to take action and lend a helping hand.
Jefferson County Sheriff's Office's Jacki Kelley is asking anyone who is looking to help to not send food to the fire location.
"Because of the generous food donations, out of control generosity coming into this place, it is more than we can eat. We are asking people who want to do something to not donate food to this location any longer," she said.
United Way Denver is accepting donations to help victims of the fire. More information can be found at www.unitedwaydenver.org or by calling 211.
If you want to volunteer or make a donation, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office asks that you go to www.HelpColoradoNow.org, or call 866-760-6489. They say the best way to help for now is to provide a financial donation.
