Phase 1: Disaster Relief

Extreme rain throughout California left over 8 million residents under flood watch. After many areas of the state received over half their annual rainfall since just December 26th, flooding, mudslides, and extreme winds were all risks being faced. Thousands have been affected by the extreme flooding, with many losing their homes, lives, and possessions. GEM USA West was positioned immediately to assist the communities affected in Northern California. A large-scale distribution took place, offering local residents new mattresses, household goods, and other necessities. We will continue to support residents through this next phase after the floods.
