BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. (KDVR) — Recovery efforts continue in Boulder County following the devastating Marshall Fire on Dec. 30.

“I’m so touched that my kids would put others first, it’s been a difficult year for us all, but kindness always wins,” Sejal and Avi’s mother shared.
Altogether, the family bought more than 200 gifts for kids of all ages. They will dropping the donations off on Sunday.
