How to Help Those Affected by the California Fires
Post by sara albers

I love you California

We are just heartbroken over the wild fires in California. My entire adult life (up until a year ago) was in Northern California. I spent 20 years in San Francisco. The Camp fire in Chico and Paradise, CA are so terrible. I cannot imagine if my entire town was destroyed by fire like Paradise. The Woolsey fire in So Cal hits so close for us as our best friend lives in that area. Living so far away from California now – I want to help… We have gathered some sites that are good places to donate for those who are affected by these terrible fires. It has been incredible to see communities band together for one another during this devastation.

How to Help Those Affected by the California Fires

American Red Cross – The Red Cross works 24/7 to be ready to respond to disasters like wildfires and other countless crises. Please donate to the Red Cross now to help. Your gift enables the Red Cross to prepare for, respond to and help people recover from disasters big and small.
