AURORA, Colo. — Just days after the Marshall Fire decimated the belongings of thousands, neighbors from across Commerce City came together to collect clothes, toys and money for those who lost everything.
Monica Newman helped spearhead the New Year's Eve event and community members from the Reunion and Eastpoint neighborhoods were eager to join with her.
"It was important for me to help others, " she said. "I was amazed by how much stuff we were able to collect."
All the collected items and money were given to a Boulder County community center.
