California Fires

As the fires burn in California, leaving destruction in their wake, our poorest neighbors are affected the most.  Here are some organizations that might be helpful:

The California Community Foundation (CCF) Wildfire Relief Fund supports immediate recovery efforts for major California wildfires, as well as long-term preparedness efforts. Go here to donate directly. The CCF also maintains an up-to-date list of local resources and information here.

The American Red Cross is on the ground in California, hosting temporary emergency shelters and food sites across the state. Last Tuesday night, more than 2,400 people stayed in 17 Red Cross and community shelters. Working with partners, the Red Cross is providing shelter, meals and snacks, relief supplies, health services such as replacing lost medications and eyeglasses, emotional support and spiritual care. Anyone is welcome at Red Cross shelters, including those with service animals. Click here to learn more about the situation in California and to donate.

The Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation supports the first responders fighting on the front lines of the wildfires. They are currently requesting donations to put toward hydration backpacks for the firefighters and other supplies. Go directly here to give.
