Local restaurants are doing their part in wildfire relief
Pizza Republica, Rio Grande and Larkburger have begun donation programs to aid victims of the High Park, Waldo Canyon and Flagstaff fires and the firefighters trying to contain them. And here are two more ways to dine out for the cause. If you know of any others, please share them in the comments section below:
The patio at Racine's.
Racine's Bakery Bar & Restaurant, 650 Sherman Street, will match up to $2,000 in donations to the Red Cross Colorado Chapters. Cash donations can made at the restaurant, which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.
Starting today through Sunday, Breckenridge Brewery will donate $1 to Red Cross for each pint of Avalanche Ale sold at both of its Denver locations: the Brewery & Tasting Room at 471 Kalamath Street and the Blake Street Pub at 2220 Blake Street. Additionally, the brewery will set up a dunk tank during its 22nd Anniversary party on Saturday, July 7, the proceeds from which will be donated to Red Cross.
And if you would like your business to get involved, here's a note from HelpColoradoNow.org:
Meal donations from restaurants (no home cooked meals please) are needed for some local personnel and volunteers supporting response efforts (please note that Federal Incident Command can NOT accept ANY food offers). If you are a restaurant and want to donate meals, click here, and then wait to be contacted (never bring food to a site unless it is requested).
