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.

Let me preface this by saying that I am El Salvadoran. From what I see though, this organization only financially helps hispanic people. I have referred several people to this organization, but every single person that I have sent comes back with the same story. There is something in the fine print that tells them that they cant financially help people unless they are hispanic. I have called and spoken to Ms. Rorrie, the Director to no avail. I cant believe that so many religious organizations support this place. I think its wonderful to support my people but there is a whole city full of people in their assigned zip codes that need help. Whats the deal NDSM?!?!?!
