4 Wheel Parts Organizes Cruise Donation Event for Colorado Wildfire Victims

Aug 13, 2012   //   by admin   //   Company News  //  No Comments

In response to the devastating wildfires that were ravaging Waldo Canyon in Colorado, Sean Lockwood, assistant manager of the 4 Wheel Parts store in Westminster, Colo., created a donation drive to assist victims and evacuees. To deliver the donations, including food, water, money, and pet supplies, Lockwood then organized the Cool Rides Cruise. On June 30, dozens of cool, custom off-road vehicles packed with donations embarked on the 86-mile trip from Westminster to Colorado Springs, traversing the tough terrain.

As cruise volunteers arrived at the north end of Colorado Springs, they could see and smell the smoke from the wildfires. The caravan of custom Jeeps, Ford trucks, Chevy trucks, and SUVs, pressed on to the evacuation center. Initially, the Red Cross couldn’t accept the donated items, but Salvation Army representatives were able to take the food and water, while participants finished the delivery by taking donated pet supplies to the Colorado Springs Humane Society.

Causing more than $450 million in damage, the Waldo Fire destroyed 346 homes and took several lives. The Cool Rides Cruise event received more than 100 individual donations, and 4 Wheel Parts would like to thank everyone who donated and participated in the cruise to assist the Colorado wildfire victims.
