It was just over a year ago that fires swept through northern California wine country. We posted a link to various resources. Now the fires are back. The two largest are the Camp Fire in Butte County and the Woolsey Fire in Malibu. There are many others. Normally the winter rains would have started by now. Not this year, our bad luck. This is our very unofficial guide to California fire donation resources.
If you’re not familiar with California geography, CALFIRE has an excellent interactive map.
People have been asking how they can help. As of 6 pm Sunday November 11, many locations have run out of space for donations of food, blankets, and other goods. We advise giving money, the most fungible of all products.
The list below is actually a meta-list. These are four articles that are from reputable sources that list ways you can help. Assistance in any form is appreciated.
Refinery 29 has the most comprehensive list.
The Sacramento Bee has a good list, focus on the Camp fire.
KTLA in Los Angeles is a good source for the Woolsey fire.
The Orange County Register is also very good.
