Donations

Thank you very much to all community members who have reached out with offers to donate food and supplies or volunteer their time to help out with the fires in the Region. While we appreciate the outreach from the community, we do not have the ability to accept any donations or offers to volunteer at this time. With COVID-19, firefighters are taking extra precautions to prevent infection and protect the communities they travel through and operate in. This includes closing fire camps to the public and, within camp, limiting close contact between different modules.

Even in a normal year, the food provided to firefighters must meet specific health, safety, and calorie requirements. This year, additional protocols are in place for preparing and distributing food and supplies. If you are interested in supporting the firefighting effort or people affected by evacuations, we recommend that the community donate food to their local food bank or consider a financial donation to the Red Cross or Wildland Firefighter Foundation. Placing “thank you” signs along the road is also a great way to show appreciation for firefighters working on the many fires in the region.

During a disaster, many people want to help by making a donation. But it takes a lot of work to collect, organize, and distribute physical materials. Usually, the best way to help is with a financial donation to relief organizations actively responding to the disaster. For a list of verified disaster relief organizations, please visit Washington Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster ( WaVOAD) or Oregon Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (ORVOAD). WaVOAD and ORVOAD organizations include the American Red CrossTeam RubiconSalvation ArmyNorthwest Baptist Disaster Relief, and the Wildland Firefighters Fund
