Donation Information

The best way to help those impacted by the Border 32 fire is a financial donation to a trusted local organization that can help meet the needs of survivors when they need it. Donations of goods such as clothing and household items can sometimes be difficult to distribute as someone who just lost their home may not have a place to keep donated items. Learn more about donations after a disaster.
