California Wildfires

The Season Is Upon Us

11-22CAFireRelief.jpg

Bet you thought we meant shopping season. Nope, we’re talking about the long and destructive fire season in California. Okay, actually it’s not technically “fire season” anymore - that’s generally considered to last June through October-ish. However, mega-fires raging all over the state in recent years have basically obliterated that concept. California is now on fire all the time, with images coming out of the devastation not unlike those from an apocalyptic movie.

Your DGB for this weekend is to look into how you can help.

Red Cross is always an excellent place to start for disaster relief charity

If you live in California, consider donating housing to evacuees via Air BNB

United Way NorCal and United Way Greater LA are both great places to donate and volunteer.

California Fire Foundation is an excellent way to support those firefighters out on the frontlines

Your DGB for today is to help those affected by the California wildfires.    This one hits close to home, as several DGB staffers are native Californians. Some of our favorite places to visit are completely destroyed. California has been absolutely ravaged by wildfires over the past few weeks. There have been 42 reported deaths, 7,700 buildings destroyed, 100,000 Californians displaced, and 240,000 acres burned.  http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-fires-rain-20171020-story.html      Today, we would like you to help the displaced residents of California. You can do that by donating to the  Redwood Credit Union .  100% of your donation will go directly to those in need, and when someone has lost absolutely everything, every penny counts.
