I was finally able to help get my family out of Lyons yesterday. People are going to need your help. If you know Lyons people here's what they will need
Places to sleep
Comfy things for their children
Games , toys, books
Basically they will have to furnish an offsite residence in a very short time frame
If you don't know someone in Lyons but want to help. Take everything you want to donate to life bridge church in north Longmont. That's also the place to volunteer your time.
Trust me, everything you do and bring will help somebody. People have their lives but may have lost everything else or most. They are running on fumes and need everyone that's has time and energy to just help them.
Another thing to know is that the people getting out have not slept in days. They have had to make life and death decisions continuously for days based on fragmented and contradicting information. They are at their wits end and need something solid to hold on to.
Lyons will be back better than ever. I know this because of what I witnessed yesterday and how this community came together to keep each other safe.
