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.
We couldn't do what we do without our volunteers and donors. Together, we're making a difference - and you can, too. Become a volunteer, make a tax-deductible donation, or participate in a fundraising event to help us save lives.
