As of this morning, things are looking much brighter for those whose homes were in the path of the Caldor Fire. For those who won’t return as their homes are beyond repair or no longer exist, we are reaching out to all our clients and connections to share this important post from our friends at TahoeFund.org.
Please take the time to review this announcement and if you want to contribute, just follow the links for complete details.
Caldor Relief – How You Can Help
As we are all watching the Caldor Fire situation, many people are asking how they can help. Although firefighters and first responders greatly appreciate the generosity and kindness of donations, firefighting agencies are fully supplied with everything they need. Donations from the public are logistically complicated to accept and firefighting agencies do not have the capacity to do so.
Locally, Tahoe Family Solutions
and Cornerstone Church are accepting goods to support family needs. Stop by the TFS Thrift Shop on Southwood Boulevard for the most current list of things they are distributing to families throughout Lake Tahoe.
If you would like to offer assistance to those affected by the Caldor Fire, donations are best directed towards evacuees. Here are funds that are helping victims of the Caldor Fire:
Food Bank of Northern Nevada – The Food Bank of Northern Nevada is offering food assistance for Caldor Fire evacuees. You can donate here. (https://give.fbnn.org/for/zcjkyj/
