Looking for a Way to Help? Monetary Donations Recommended

If you are looking to help those affected by the fire events, a great way to do so is to send a monetary donation to a nonprofit organization. No donation is too small. 

The San Diego Foundation is accepting donations to assist in the recovery of wildfires. Donors can text "SDRECOVER" to 50155 or make a donation online at sdfoundation.org/disasterfund. A list of additional organizations is available through San Diego Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (SDVOAD) at sdvoad.org

The need for material items including clothes, blankets, and household goods has been met. 

For the latest emergency updates in English and Spanish, visit www.sdcountyemergency.com, and download the SD Emergency app. If you are affected by the fire and need to talk to someone by phone about evacuations, shelters, road closures and other non-emergency disaster-related services, call 211. If you are hearing impaired, dial 711 and ask to be connected to (858) 300-1211.
