CRESA Always Here, Always Ready

How can you help?

We know there are many of you looking for ways to assist with wildfires happening in our area.  We appreciate your generous spirit and willingness to help.  At this time, do not try to deliver emergency goods or supplies to first responders.  Please be patient as crews continue to assess needs and communicate how you can be helpful.  In the interim consider the following:

Red Cross

The Red Cross is operating two shelters throughout the region for anyone displaced by wildfires. More than 160 evacuees are staying at the two shelters in Gresham and Stevenson, as of Tuesday morning.

Shelter locations for those affected by the Eagle Creek Wildfire:

How to help: Donate to the American Red Cross at redcross.org or by calling 1-800-RED CROSS. Financial donations to “Disaster Relief” allows the Red Cross to purchase the exact supplies for the needs of a specific disaster relief operation.

The Red Cross says if you want to help out, the best thing to do is donate on their website. Donating goods or food isn’t always as helpful. If you want to volunteer, the Red Cross encourages you to sign up online and receive training instead of just showing up on the spot.

VCA hospitals for evacuated pet accommodations: The VCA hospitals in Vancouver and Battle Ground are offering free accommodations for evacuated animals. For more information, call 360-892-0032 (Vancouver) or 360-687-7151 (Battle Ground).
