The holiday season is now here and many people are asking where holiday donations can be made to help make this season a little brighter for those families impacted by this disaster. At this time, we encourage individuals to reach out to community service agencies and local non-profit organizations who collect donations and provide services to families throughout the year, and particularly during the holiday season.

Monetary Donations
The best way to help recovery efforts is through monetary donations to trusted organizations. Monetary donations are the easiest to manage and provide the means to purchase the exact items in need. Please utilize trusted organizations for monetary donations to avoid potential scams. The official Camp Fire recovery website, https://buttecountyrecovers.org/give, has an initial list of agencies who are accepting monetary donations for Camp Fire Relief efforts.
Organizations that have a 501(c)3 designation that are providing response or recovery support for Camp Fire survivors, and are able to accept monetary donations, can complete an application to be listed at https://buttecountyrecovers.org/give. The application and submission instructions can also be found at that website.

Donations of Goods
Individuals or organizations desiring to make a donation of new goods should complete the form located at http://relieflink.org. Your offer will be assessed by the donation coordination team. If a need related to your offer is identified, an organization or agency representative will contact you.
There are many community service agencies, faith-based organizations, service organizations and generous people in Butte County who are working hard to help all families affected by this disaster.
