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.
My daughter (9yo) and I have volunteered with SPIN off/on for the last few years...it's very well organized and offers flexible opportunities. For a while we played with the cats which helps them become more adaptable/more adoptable. Then for a period of time we just did kitty laundry (linens/bedding etc)...Sue is a wonderful animal control officer and tireless advocate for these strays...if you have 1-2 hrs/wk, go to one of Sue's orientations and see what opportunity fits your schedule/interests.
