Phase 1: Disaster Relief

In July 2022, we activated our Phase 1 response to the Oak Fire in Mariposa County, California. When the McKinney Fire broke soon thereafter, we pivoted plans quickly to service both fires. Our partnership with Paradise Gleaners allows us to stay on top of real-time information in Northern and Central California, and tailor our response accordingly.

Our ground teams can be found providing Family Necessity Kits in locations where needs are highest, which are often areas that are harder to reach or receive less press coverage. As the wildfire season develops, we will continue to pack trucks with supplies that best match on-the-ground needs.
