Would you like to volunteer or donate to help the victims of the “Slater Fire Incident”? Please contact us at this email with your contact information and how you would like to help.

Ask for what you need:

Many of us are not accustomed to asking for assistance, these are not normal times. There are so many people who are just waiting to help during this crisis. Please ask for what you need and communicate with the many resources that will be headed our way.  We are working with teams that assisted in the Car Fire so they will understand the devastation we are facing. Remember to be patient with us as we are getting set up.  Many of our volunteers have been directly impacted by the fires and are caring for displaced families while coordinating resources.  Together we will get everyone the help they need.

Coming soon:

  • As soon as it is safe, we will be setting up a service center and food distribution center at 19 Davis Road, Happy Camp, CA
  • Other partnerships are being formed with service agencies as we speak.
  • More info coming soon!

Question? Please email the above email addresses or call 530.643.6369.
