How To Help Victims Of The California Wildfires

By Kristin Hunt

Disaster struck California last week, as three separate wildfires sparked across the state. The so-called Camp, Woosley, and Hill fires are still ravaging homes and entire towns, and one (the Camp fire) has already become the deadliest in state history. As first responders work to contain the flames, several nonprofits and local communities are helping victims who have lost their homes find relief. Here's how you can support their work, even if you live hundreds of miles away.

Donate to the CCF Wildfire Relief Fund

The California Community Foundation established its Wildfire Relief Fund in 2003 to help the state through wildfire season. For the past 15 years, it's raised $5 million in relief, money that helps rebuild homes, secure temporary housing, improve emergency communications, and provide first aid, mental health, and basic needs assistance to victims of wildfires. You can give to this community fund through the CCF website.
