Let's talk about something else... the fires in CA, how to help?

I want to know if there is a site or a place or whatever I can send donations or purchase care packages for the people that had to evacuate. I know I can look online but not sure I trust just any random website. My family was displaced by Katrina and we are all back in one piece now and I'm looking to help out some one else now.

    my fiances friend had to go all the way to near LA and we live in norther california about 45min above san francisco

    Best bet would be to call the fire dept in the county and see what you can do

  • The only fire not resulting from a controlled burn is the one in LA. --the others are all from control burns that got away...but that isn't the point.

    If you contact the Red Cross in any of the affected areas, you can receive a specific list of materials, goods and items needed.
    We dropped off some bedding and kitchen items yesterday. I don't know who will get them, but I hope it helps a bit in rebuilding a new home.
