Douglas, Wyoming has been concerned for those who have been touched by the effects of the Badger Creek Fire. We wanted to help out the young women and men on the front line as the fire went from a few acres to many thousands of acres.
Here To Help Foundation of Wyoming has started a fire donation drive to collect items to help the fire fighters.
Through word of mouth and social media the wave has started.
When we arrived in Laramie we found that the authorities had closed the roads and access to the fire camp was not possible.
We attended a meeting that took place at the Laramie Fair Grounds.
Rocky Mountain Incident Management Team provided information to the public and those who have been effected by the fire. Details concerning fire fighting progress and information for those who had to be evacuated.
After the meeting I ran into a local volunteer fire fighter who had set up facilities at his shop where donations could be dropped off.
Thank you Tracy for helping us get our donations to the fire camp.
Thank you and those you serve with for your much needed service.
Managed to make it through detention with out any time added for bad behaviour. We were glad to get those cuffs off. Release went thru without a hitch execpt for all the paper work involved. After the sheriff took the handcuffs off we managed to get some nice pictures of this eye opening experience.
What a fun day at the Joint Justice Center in Douglas, Wyoming. We really appreciate all of the donations and emotional support during our time in lockup.
Thank you to the officers and staff of the Converse County Sheriffs Office. You made this event fun and very informative. You really have a nice state of the art facilities to work in.
Koltons Karnival. A really big thank you for providing all the yummie food. Biscuits and gravy, pancakes and coffee were awsome and very very much apprecialed. Thank you.
Believe me.. It wasn’t easy.. Some can take it. Some cant.
We will be taking to the street all day tomorrow getting the next open box pantry ready to be set and stocked to support those in the community who need the help.
Join us at Jackalope days in down town Douglas Wyoming. Look for our ice cream wagon it really stands out. We have free cotton candy, ice cream and soda. You can drop off any items you might be able to provide of non-perishable
baby items. Diapers, oils and creams.
Thanks for all you do.. Your help is really appreciated.
Good morning! Been out of the office for a bit but now it’s back to work.
For those of you effected should know that any one who is worried about feeding the kids breakfast, lunch or dinner should know you now have an open box food pantry located on 2nd Street sitting by the Jason Paris State Farm Insurance Office. Across the street from Old Chicago. See link below.
We had people from all over and many drive by, stop, get out to see what was going on. We enjoyed the many selections of food items provided by Grab and GO Gourmet.
Turns out we have many in the community who are very supportive of this pantry initiative and asked how they can help.
Its an open box pantry so any one who has something can leave non-perishable food items in the original unopened packages in the pantry. We have seen canned foods, food packages, toothbrush and toothpaste and other necessities for baby’s.
Thank you Jason Paris State Farm Insurance for providing the location and necessities for the event.
