Statement Regarding Item Donations at Red Cross Shelters
November 11, 2018
Please avoid bringing donated items like food and clothing to Red Cross shelters at this time. Our shelters are stocked with food, water, and comfort items and Red Cross relief workers are focusing on the people affected by the Woolsey and Hill fires and meeting their emergency needs. Collecting donated items requires time, money and personnel to process, all precious resources in disaster relief.
The best way to support disaster victims is with a financial donation. Please visit redcross.org, call 1-800-RED-CROSS, or text CAWILDFIRES to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
