THOMAS FIRE – DONATION INFORMATION

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and Christmas is the season for giving! Firefighters working the Thomas Fire during the holidays are so appreciative of all the local community support. We feel the love!

But, we are “well-cared-for” by this Incident. And, we will have holiday celebrations with our friends and families when we return home. The BEST gift you can give us is to give to those in need this Holiday season, especially those folks who have been impacted by the Thomas Fire. Give us a warm smile, a wave, a cute poster by the roadway, but please give your financial support and donated supplies to local assistance organizations.

While we appreciate the public’s volunteer spirit and desire to donate, we simply don’t have the infrastructure to accept donations, especially food, which is carefully regulated in fire camp by health and safety ordinances.

Please support your local communities. We’ve listed a few of these organizations below, but there are also many others nearby who can really use your help. It’s always a good idea to call first to confirm specific needs.
