The Los Altos Community Foundation is offering options for residents looking to help aid victims of the ongoing wildfires in Northern and Southern California.
Joe Eyre, executive director of the Los Altos Community Foundation, suggested residents contribute directly to foundations in the affected areas.
“As we well know, fires have ravaged both Butte County and the Thousand Oaks and Malibu areas in Ventura and LA counties,” Eyre wrote to local foundation members Monday. “If you wish to donate to help victims in either of these areas, we recommend contributing to the fire relief funds of their respective community foundations.
For the devastating Camp Fire in Butte County, the North Valley Community Foundation has established a Camp Fire Evacuation Relief Fund.
For the Hill Fire and Woolsey Fires in Ventura (which includes Thousand Oaks) and Los Angeles counties, you can support fire relief efforts through the Ventura County Community Foundation Community Disaster Relief Fund or the California Community Foundation (covers LA County) Wildfire Relief Fund.
“Our hearts go out to the victims, their families, and the communities affected by these fires,” Eyre said.
