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.
FMG is my favorite organization to volunteer with because it's exceptionally easy and enjoyable as an indoor horticulture volunteer. I enjoy watering the plants or sweeping the floors before the guests arrive, so it's like I have the gardens all to myself. All of the staff I've interacted with are helpful and cheerful. There's no sense of urgency to the work, and it's very low pressure.
