Kern Chapter Responds to Family Fire on Maple Ave.

September 6th - The Kern Chapter Disaster Action Team volunteers were very again late last night assisting a single family (4 Adults) affected by a home fire.

The fire occurred on the 1000 Block of Maple Ave in Bakersfield.

The family was assisted with shelter, blankets, comfort kits, and other necessities, as well as much needed resources and referral guidance.

This call marks the 73nd family with a total of 301 individuals (190 Adults, 101 Children, and 10 infants) needing assistance because of home fires already this year.

Thank you to the amazing volunteers who donated their time to assist these families!
