Coming Together to Help Rebuild Lives in North Bay

One of the most direct ways to help those in need of assistance is by making a monetary donation online. GoFundMe has curated a page of wildfire fundraising campaigns that address different areas of need, GoFundMe.com/raise-funds/Cafirerelief; The American Red Cross is accepting donations at RedCross.org, select California Wildfires; YouCaring is getting close to reaching their intended goal at YouCaring.com/americanredcross-976697. Car-sharing site Turo has a program where those displaced by fires and without personal transit can access Turo cars for free.

According to spokesperson Christin Di Scipio, “If North Bay fire evacuees are in need of a vehicle during this hard time, email DisasterRelief@turo.com.”

Those who wish to make cash donations (still the recommended method of assistance) may also contribute to the United Way Bay Area, uwba.org/donate, entering the phrase “wildfire” in the comments section.

There are many websites listing local drop-off locations for clothing, bedding, food, baby formulas and more. As needs change daily, it’s best to do an internet search immediately prior to drop-off.
