The Marshall Fire burned more than 6,000 acres in Boulder County, Colorado, including more than 1,000 homes. Maxar’s corporate headquarters are adjacent to this community, where our team members, family and friends live. Today, the Maxar Foundation donated $50,000 to the Sister Carmen Community Center, a nonreligious organization with a mission to provide “assistance to residents of East Boulder County who are in need, without discrimination.”

“The Maxar Foundation believes this gift will enable the Sister Carmen Community Center to support our local community as it rebuilds after the devastating urban wildfire,” said Liz Andora, Maxar Foundation Board Chair and Maxar’s Chief Human Resources Officer.

Maxar’s WorldView-3 collected imagery of a neighborhood in Louisville, CO, before and after it was destroyed by the Marshall Fire.

Sister Carmen Community Center is responding to the Marshall Fire by providing the following services to affected residents:

  • Food, hygiene and baby items
  • Funds for temporary housing
  • Gift cards for food, clothing and supplies
  • Access to its thrift store for clothing, bedding and other essential items, free of charge
  • Case management services
  • Other resources as needs arise
