Let's help our neighbors!

Join us as we battle the blaze together and bring some relief to our friends.

We all know at least one person who has been evacuated or has lost their home due to the tragic fires. Homes, schools, hospitals, businesses, and churches have all been devastated. Thousands of our friends and loved ones are displaced, living in mass shelters, hotels or with friends and family; many with only the clothes they were wearing when they evacuated.

Volunteers of America has joined the effort and will begin deploying food, clothing essentials and hygiene products this week.
