Our Summit County community has been hit hard by COVID-19 in the past 6 months. Two-thirds of our mountain community has been financially impacted by the virus. Many residents here depend on the ski industry in order to make a living and with the March shutdown of Colorado ski areas that ended the winter ski season, many in our community were left unable to pay bills and provide basic needs for themselves and their families.
The Family Intercultural Resource Center has done an extraordinary job providing essentials services to those in our community. From food banks to rental assistance programs and mental health guidance, FIRC has been the backbone of the community and supports anyone who needs it.
Copper is thrilled to partner with FIRC through our #PlayItForward initiative in a time when FIRC is an absolute necessity in our community. #PlayItForward celebrates and enables actions that support our local mountain community during this time of tremendous need and beyond.
