Spangler Elementary Supports BJCF Fire Fund

Students and staff of Spangler Elementary School in Longmont were inspired by the efforts of the many organizations that have responded to the Fourmile Fire. Glass jars and other containers were placed around the school to collect donations. Their gift to the Boulder Jewish Community Foundation’s “Fourmile Fire Relief Fund” qualified for a matched challenge; therefore, 200% of their donation supported our neighbors who have been impacted or displaced by the recent community tragedy.

Additional funds are available in our “matched grant challenge.” If you wish to donate, please send your contribution to: Fourmile Relief Fund, c/o Boulder Jewish Community Foundation, P.O. Box 20338, Boulder, CO 80308.
