As the parents of two of the young men affected by last Friday’s house fire, we would like to express our deepest gratitude to the Steamboat Springs community. The outpouring of kindness and generosity bestowed on our sons and their roommates was absolutely awe-inspiring.
The Steamboat community rallied around these guys in ways we could have never imagined. Within hours, they were provided housing and donations of clothing, money, gift cards and other much-needed goods that left them overwhelmed with gratefulness.
When we received the phone call early Friday morning, we were immediately thankful knowing that everyone was safe. All of these young men are originally from Pennsylvania, and, we thought, far away from family. We were wrong. It turns out they are in the arms of an amazing extended family in Steamboat.
Thank you, Steamboat.
