Northern California Fires - How Can I Help?

Want to Help?

Northern California Fires - How can I help graphicThere are many ways you can help during and after a wildfire. It may be volunteering, donating needed items, or making a contribution to a local charity. We will keep this list up to date and are very thankful for your interest in helping and your generosity of heart.

Responding to the needs during a tragedy like this is a long process. What people need immediately may be different than what they need months after. Please check back here for updates or stay in contact with your favorite charity to see what they need.

We strongly encourage donors to carefully research charitable organizations prior to donating to ensure that their donated funds will have the desired result. For additional information and easy-to-use tips on avoiding charity scams following a disaster, please visit the Attorney General's Charities website.


Volunteering

Social workers/counselors: People are affected emotionally and providing counseling is critical. Trained counselors may be required. We will update this section as needed.


Donating

This section will be updated as needed.


Contributing

It always takes time to identify specific needs, but financial donations to grant-making organizations and nonprofit disaster response organizations are often the best way to help individuals and families affected by disasters. As needs are identified, this information will be updated.
