U-Haul Offers 30 Days Free Self-Storage to Wildfire Evacuees in Boulder County
U-Haul Company of Northern Colorado has made four stores available to provide 30 days of free self-storage to people impacted by the devastating Marshall Fire in Boulder County.
Thousands of residents in Superior, Louisville, and neighboring areas have been evacuated, and estimated 1,000-plus homes have been destroyed by the wildfire that sparked late Thursday morning. Accessibility to local storage units can play a small part in the recovery process.
“This wildfire is already the most destructive in our state’s history,” said Ryan Preston, U-Haul Company of Northern Colorado president. “It is heartbreaking for so many of our neighbors who are starting 2022 without a home, or away from their homes. With the rebuilding process ahead, we want help by offering secure storage to those impacted at no cost for a full month.”
Outreach efforts have extended to U-Haul Company of Southern Colorado, based in Colorado Springs, where the team has collected food, clothes and supplies needed for displaced residents. Those items are being delivered to Boulder County today.
