On May 28, North Fork father, husband and all around great guy Michael Hillman was in an accident that resulted in a debilitating and life-changing spinal cord injury and quadriplegia.
Fundraising efforts are underway to help the family with immediate and long-term needs, including a remodel of their home and purchase of a van and a wheelchair.
Bank of Colorado has established an account for the Hillman family. Donations may be made at the Hotchkiss branch at 394 E. Bridge Street, mail at P.O. Box 600, Hotchkiss, CO 81419, or at any branch location.
Donations can also be made online at www.gofundme.com/hillmans.
