DONATING OR RECEIVING PHYSICAL ITEMS
Because of the outpouring of donations, many donation centers are no longer taking donations. If you find this is the case, we recommend you hold onto your donations for a few weeks and then check back. Some people affected by the fires might not be ready to receive donations for some time. If you are someone who is in need of physical items (clothing, backpacks, toiletries, outdoor gear) please visit one of these places.
