Colorado, We Can Help Those Affected by the California Wildfires
It seems like every week there's another wildfire in California, as the state is constantly wracked with drought and dry climates. The Southern California wildfires-- Camp, Woolsey, and Hill-- have resulted in major evacuations, that of over 300,000 people, and unfortunately several deaths.
With such devastation burning states away, it's hard to figure out how to help our friends in California. However, it's easier than you might think.
Donating to the following organizations will help aid firefighters or victims in the area:
- The American Red Cross
- The Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation
- The United Way of Greater Los Angeles
- The CCF Wildfire Relief Fund
- The Humane Society of Ventura County
The above organizations will not only provide aid to hardworking first responders in the area, but the Humane Society will be taking in affected animals that become stranded by the fires.
You can also use the above links to become a Humane Society volunteer or volunteer for the Red Cross if you're thinking about traveling to California anytime soon.
Sometimes it's hard to know exactly how much you can help, but even with just a small donation, lives can change.
