How to Help Victims of the Camp Fire

The Camp Fire has devastated the communities of Paradise and Butte County. People have lost everything, including the lives of loved ones, friends, and neighbors. Of course, you want to help – here are Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation’s recommendations.

Our fund is going to support the needs of the evacuation centers who opened their doors to support the people who lost their homes and are fleeing the fire. These centers are very often not prepared to handle the massive influx of people but do it anyway. Our immediate funding priorities are to make sure they have whatever they need to continue providing these vital services. These needs include portable toilets, portable showers, blankets, energy and water costs, and countless other needs.
Once the immediate needs begin to get met and as we move out of a crisis situation, the fund will transition to supporting long-term recovery efforts. Since we are not yet out of the crisis we do not know exactly what these needs will be, but the money will ultimately go to supporting victims of the Camp Fire

At this time TTCF is not accepting donations to a fund, and strongly encourages you to donate to North Valley Community Foundation or to open your home via airbnb open homes. We also recommend donating gift cards to evacuation centers instead of goods, unless they are expressly requested.
