Agencies across the valley are gearing up to accept donations that will either be used locally or sent to other communities such as Colorado Springs.

At this time, however, there has been no word as to if the firefighters in De Beque are in need of supplies, said Captain Terrie Wilson, corps officer and pastor for The Salvation Army.

The emergency shelter set-up for De Beque residents at Palisade High School had received donations of bottled water and a spaghetti dinner, but had yet to receive any families in need from the evacuation.

The Salvation Army may start asking for bottled water or Gatorade if the situation in De Beque changes, as many of those supplies have already been sent to aid in the Waldo Canyon fire, Wilson said.

Right now, the best way to help is to donate monetarily or volunteer to help a local agency, said Mike Page of the Grand Junction Fire Department. Residents should not go to the scene of any disaster.
