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.

The L.O.V.E. Mentoring Program works in partnership with organizations, universities and public schools, whose mission is to enhance the well-being of young girls and Hispanic communities in New York.

L.O.V.E. is a school-based curriculum program that consists of three core components: personal empowerment, study skills, and career readiness.
