Los Altos Community Foundation is offering options for residents seeking to support victims of the ongoing wildfires in Northern and Southern California.
Joe Eyre, executive director of the 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 in a Nov. 12 letter. “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 Camp Fire in Butte County, the North Valley Community Foundation (nvcf.org) has established a Camp Fire Evacuation Relief Fund.
For the Hill Fire and Woolsey Fire in Ventura (which includes Thousand Oaks) and Los Angeles counties, residents can contribute to fire relief efforts through the Ventura County Community Foundation Community Disaster Relief Fund (vccf.org) or the California Community Foundation Wildfire Relief Fund (calfund.org/wildfire-relief-fund).
“Our hearts go out to the victims, their families, and the communities affected by these fires,” Eyre said.
