As devastating fires burn throughout the region, several charities have boots on the ground and special programs supporting relief efforts. Here's how you can help~
Text UWVC to 41444 to make a cash donation to the Thomas Fire Fund
The United Way of Ventura County, American Red Cross of Ventura County and the Ventura County Sheriff's Office of Emergency Services have teamed up to create the Thomas Fire Fund. All proceeds will go directly to support the hundreds of residents displaced by the fires
Donations can be made via text message, on United Way of Ventura County's website or over the phone at 805-485-6288. Checks with "Thomas Fire Fund" in the memo line can be mailed to 702 County Square Drive, Suite 100 Ventura, CA 93003
Donate water, snacks to help displaced residents
The Salvation Army Ventura Corps has set up shop at the Ventura County Fairgrounds and is asking for donations of food and water as it works to help evacuees
As the charity's other chapters assist in various evacuation centers, Salvation Army is asking for monetary donations to support its work. Those wishing to donate can do so by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY or visiting the organization's website.
Donate cash or supplies to the Humane Society of Ventura County
As HSVC works to care for the more than 100 animals that it has taken in since the fires began, the organization says it is in need of donations. Alfalfa hay, Timothy hay, cat chow, rabbit food, flashlights, headlamps, lanterns, water troughs, bottled water, fruit, snacks, hoses and power generators can be dropped off at the shelter at 402 Bryant St. in Ojai
HSVC is also asking for food and water donations to feed volunteers working around the clock.
Support Los Angeles County Animal Care Foundation's disaster relief
LACACF is accepting donations to supplement its disaster relief efforts through its Noah's Legacy Fund, which provides supplies, training and equipment to first responders charged with rescuing animals from areas stricken by natural disasters. (Continued on next comment)
