August Tzedakah Box Supports Carr Fire Disaster Relief Fund
Our August Tzedakah Box contributions will support the Shasta Regional Community Foundation's Community Disaster Relief Fund. In Northern California, the 207,000-acre Carr Fire in Shasta County has destroyed 1,000 structures and is threatening thousands more, according to CalFire. In addition to the loss of life, more than 39,000 people are displaced as firefighters work to contain the blaze. Your donations will assist regional nonprofits and disaster relief organizations responding to the active Carr Fire that began west of the Redding, CA area on July 23, 2018.
Shasta Regional Community Foundation has a credible history of helping regional nonprofits and organizations with the ability to deliver monetary assistance efficiently and effectively toward the recovery of communities over time. The Community Foundation gives grants to nonprofit and government stakeholders to ensure that funds flow quickly to those most in need and establishes safeguards to secure proper distribution of the funds. This is achieved through a two-step process: 1. Short-term support: funds for immediate relief will be made available as they become identified to large scale relief agencies to provide such support. 2. Long-term support: funds for long-term relief will be distributed towards rebuilding and recovery efforts as identified by local and regional partners.
