2021 Wildfire Relief Fund
The 2021 wildfire season is shaping up to be another terrible one in California and the Western United States. In California, three of the 2021 fires (Dixie, Caldor, and Monument) are already on Cal Fire’s top 20 largest California Wildfires list since 1932 (by acreage burned), with five of the top 7 largest fires claimed by 2020 fires. Startling images of the Dixie Fire’s total destruction of the entire town of Greenville or of firefighters riding ski chairlifts to prevent the Caldor Fire from cresting the ridge at Kirkwood Mountain Resort put these statistics into sharp focus. The organizations in this fund were researched and chosen to provide boots-on-the-ground support during and in the aftermath of wildfires to meet the short, medium, and long-term needs of impacted people.
