Berthoud students raise money for classmates affected by the Marshall fire – Loveland Reporter-Herald

The Marshall Fire, which was first reported to authorities on Dec. 30, 2021, is the most destructive wildfire in the state’s history. Nearly 1,000 homes were destroyed in Superior, Louisville and unincorporated Boulder County. In Louisville, 550 residential structures were destroyed and 43 were damaged, according to an update from Boulder County on Jan. 6. The total value of residential structure damage was $229,199,184, according to the county. An additional 14 commercial structures were destroyed, as well as four that were damaged. Officials are still seeking the cause of the fire. The students have surpassed their goal of $460, $10 for each of the 46 Louisville students who lost homes in the fire, according to Will Yusca, an eighth grader on the Dragon Leadership Team. “It’s hard to imagine,” said Morgan Brown, one of the students who organized the fundraiser. Brown said that she had lived in her home her entire life, and that the feeling of being uprooted from it is not one that she would envy. “Think how your life would change.”

“They’ve been going around telling kids, they’ve been calling Louisville, that’s pretty much all on them,” Traver said. While Zac Traver, a school counselor at Turner, suggested the idea of a fundraiser to the Dragon Leadership Team, he said that much of the execution was their doing, including developing all of the advertising and outreach efforts and corresponding with the student council at Louisville Middle School.

An option to bring canned food was also given for students who would have an easier time grabbing something from the pantry, but because the Louisville community had received so much food since the fire first began to impact the community late last year, the approximately 30 pounds of food collected by the fundraiser will instead be donated to a church in Berthoud.

“Being in that pitch meeting, they had, I don’t know, ten other ideas,” Traver said. “This was the easiest and quickest we could do, but I’m really excited for the future fundraisers we could get going for the rest of the year, whether that be people here in Berthoud, or more families down in Louisville and everybody in between. I’m excited that this is going well, but I’m really excited to see what they come up with next. Because they have some really amazing ideas, and I can’t wait to get those implemented.” Traver said that the hat day will likely not be the last fundraising move the students will undertake.
