Please pray for those affected by Colorado's wildfires

News stations are reporting this morning that the Waldo Canyon Fire in Colorado has almost doubled in size, forcing thousands to flee to safety.

As fires continue to threaten Colorado Springs, The Salvation Army is assessing the needs of the new evacuees and our ability to help.

In order to meet the increased need at local shelter sites, The Salvation Army has additional Emergency Disaster teams from Montana and Wyoming on the way. In addition, a team from Vail will be arriving at the Summit Elementary School shelter in Divide, Colorado.

In Colorado Springs, The Salvation Army is currently running all feeding operations at YMCA Southeast Family Center Shelter and the Cheyenne Mountain High School Shelter. The Salvation Army’s local units are providing for survivors’ immediate needs, such as food, water, and comfort.

If members of the community would like to volunteer to help with Waldo Canyon Fire relief efforts, they can register online at their RegisterToRing website
