How to Support California Bay Area Wildfire Relief

How to Support California Bay Area Wildfire Relief

Wildfires around the Bay Area and Northern California have devastated communities, lands, and wildlife, as firefighters continue their tireless, heroic work. If you are able to make a donation to help, here are five organizations to consider.

💚 The Wildland Firefighter Foundation, @wffoundation, provides immediate financial and crisis assistance to families of fallen and injured wildland firefighters. 

💚 UC Davis Veterinary Hospital, @ucdavisvetmed, is caring for all kinds of animals affected by the LNU Lightning Complex fires, amid many of the students and staff being personally impacted by fires.

💚 Community Foundation of Santa Cruz County, @cfsantacruzco, created the Fire Response Fund, where proceeds are distributed to other nonprofits directly assisting affected county residents.

💚 Point Reyes National Seashore Association (PRNSA), @pointreyes_prnsa, works to preserve wildlife habitat, trails, and historic sites, along with providing environmental education programs in this amazing coastal park.

💚 Sempervirens Fund, @sempervirensfund, has launched two funds to help with redwoods recovery: the Big Basin Recovery Fund and the Santa Cruz Redwood Restoration Fund.
