Community First Foundation Stands with Colorado Springs
We at Community First Foundation stand with Colorado Springs against hate and violence. The tragedy at Club Q this weekend is devastating to our community and beyond. As Colorado again struggles to make sense of another violent attack on our community, we know you may be asking, “How can I help?”. We’ve pulled together some helpful information below to guide you in supporting those who are affected.
The Colorado Healing Fund has been activated and is accepting donations in response to the Club Q Shooting which occurred around midnight last evening. Donations will be distributed through CHF’s community partners, including the Colorado Organization of Victim Assistance (COVA). CHF is partnering with state and local victim assistance organizations to determine how best to support the individuals and families after the shooting.
