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.

When you give to Goodwill, you're opening doors to employment, independence, and opportunity for people in your community. Your charitable gifts to Goodwill provide job training and employment opportunities for people with disabilities; people who want to work, so they can earn a living, support their families, and enjoy the benefits that independence, self-sufficiency, and personal contribution afford.
At Goodwill, we believe work builds strong families, and creates the economic energy that builds strong communities. And at Goodwill, everything - from your donations, to the revenue they generate, to the specialized training it provides - everything stays in the community.
