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.

Although there were a lot of volunteers there helping on the morning when we arrived at the Sonoma Heart Walk, they found some things for my husband and I to do. We ended up being bouncers (my name, not theirs) for the VIP tent and had a lot of fun with it. And, of course, we got t-shirts and were treated wonderfully, which is always encouraging to volunteer more!
Not to mention, the event itself was a lot of fun. And heart health is a great cause!
