We have had record breaking acres burned in Oregon just this year at over 1,000,000 acres. If thats hard to comprehend, remember that’s more than we expect in a 10 year span here in Oregon! We have had at least 10 deaths, thousands of homes and businesses burned down, and whole towns wiped out just in the last couple months. If you have not been affected by the fires, I’m sure you know someone who has, and we can all do our part to help those in need right now.
Remember, people have lost EVERYTHING in these fires, so anything helps.

If you don’t have extra things to donate, think about donating money, it goes directly to those in need. Salvation Army is doing great things to help those in need.
There are many places locally that are helping how they can by gathering supplies to shuttle to evacuees. A great place to help is The Salvation Army, who are making meals for evacuees, as well as firefighters who are still battling the fires all over Washington, Oregon, and California. Check them out today to see how you can help.
Remember, it may not seem like much to you, but could mean the world to someone who has lost everything, so do what you can, big or small.
