BROOMFIELD, Colo. — It’s been four months since everything changed for thousands of people in Boulder County.
The Marshall Fire erupted in December and tore through homes, businesses and communities, leaving almost nothing behind.
But the outpouring of support continues for those affected.
Thanks to our generous Denver7 Gives viewers and Amazon, $40,000 worth of essential items were donated to the nonprofit A Precious Child in Broomfield.
The organization helps families and children who are going through a difficult time.
The Denver7 Give team stocked the nonprofit’s warehouse with clothing, shoes, toys, home goods, toiletries and more.
On Saturday, around 100 families were able to stop by the warehouse to pick up items during a free shopping event.

“It looks like we’re doing our part to support them. This is a long-term recovery and anything we can do to continue supporting them as they rebuild is what we’re here to do,” said Nichole Everman, CEO of A Precious Child. .
Mary Ann Lasky lost everything at Superior. Her family was relocated and she said the hardest part was starting over.
“It’s really hard to understand what it means to lose everything. As of December 30, everything we owned fit in an SUV. We had no silverware, trash cans, extra underwear. It’s amazing when you think about losing almost everything you own,” she said.
Lasky said she appreciates people’s generosity in helping those affected.
“The community has been the biggest savior,” Lasky said.
