Thanks to the support of multiple community events throughout the year, the Chase Hawks Memorial Association Community Crisis Fund is able to provide financial support for families enduring crisis.

We chip away, one family at a time, toward our vision of no person forgoing necessities because of financial constraints due to a crisis. In practice, this means that a single mom with cancer does not have to choose between buying groceries and putting gas in her car to make it to chemotherapy appointments. With your generous support, Chase Hawks Memorial Association can provide a grocery gift card so she can put dinner on the table for her kids and get the treatment she needs to get healthy and back on her feet.
While we never know exactly what kind of assistance will be requested, we have provided fuel for families to drive sick children to Denver, built wheelchair ramps, collected clothes and household items for fire victims, secured airline and bus tickets for medical travel, covered funeral expenses, and even provided Christmas toys for families in crisis who must spend their dollars elsewhere.
Every request is researched and whenever possible, we provide assistance in the form of a gift card, or by paying a bill directly instead of giving cash. This helps ensure that your dollars go where they are supposed to.
