From June to December 2021, tens of thousands of blazes across the West consumed more than 7 million acres while evacuations forced hundreds of thousands of people from their homes. Throughout the 2021 wildfire season and beyond, the American Red Cross has stood with impacted residents to provide immediate relief and ongoing recovery support.
Thanks to our generous donors, the Red Cross is now starting to get emergency financial assistance into the hands of residents whose homes were severely impacted by California wildfires.
