Point6, makers of premium merino wool socks engineered to deliver the ultimate in performance and comfort, offers its support to victims of the devastating High Park wildfire near Fort Collins this month.
Like many Colorado companies, Point6 has pledged to donate goods to aid fire victims in response to the blaze that has so far claimed 259 homes and burned over 87,000 acres. Eight large wildfires have broken out across the state due to extremely dry conditions, record temperatures, lightning, and high winds.
The High Park fire especially hit home for Point6, with its offices located in Northwest Colorado, approximately 120-miles from the High Park area. As an outdoor industry brand with a strong connection to the environment and the many outdoor recreation opportunities Colorado offers, Point6 is doing its part to lend a helping hand during this extremely difficult time, and encourages others to do the same.
â€œWe are doing our part to help those affected by this tragic event,â€ said Katie Hughes, marketing and sales coordinator for Point6. â€œWe hope relief efforts bring comfort to those who have lost their homes or have been evacuated.â€
New socks were listed as a high priority item for donations, and Point6 will provide 300 pairs of their performance merino wool socks to victims displaced by the fire. Point6 premium socks are proudly made in the USA from the highest quality merino wool and offer lasting comfort, durability and quality.
