How to Help the Victims of the California Wildfires

Updated: Nov 13, 2018


Three major wildfires – Camp, Woolsey, and Hill – have engulfed the state of California. Causing tremendous amounts of damage to properties, the environment, and and uprooted hundreds of thousands of individuals -- nearly a quarter million in Southern California alone.

It's easy to feel helpless during times like these, but fortunately we are all able to lend assistance -- regardless of where we live.
