Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
THANKSGIVING MORNING PACK: Volunteers and their families will assemble four highly nutritious dry ingredients in custom 13 oz bags. The tasks include scooping, measuring, bagging, and sealing food ingredients in bags. The bags are weighted, counted, packed into sturdy cardboard boxes and sealed for shipment/distribution to hungry children around the world.
Groups will help assemble between 100,000 -150,000 meals during the three-hour public packing session.
