Here is a message from Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation:
We’re requesting donations at supportlafd.org to provide hydration backpacks for Los Angeles Fire Department firefighters working tirelessly to contain the fires across Southern California. Many of our firefighters have little access to water and have been working for over 24 hours.
Here is a short list of local and well established 501(c)3 charitable organizations related to your local fire service:
A message from the Red Cross:
Fast-moving wildfires are consuming thousands of acres in California, forcing tens of thousands of people from their homes. The American Red Cross is there, providing shelter and emotional support for the evacuees.
A message from LA Animal Services:
If you can adopt or foster, please go to the closest LA City Animal Service Center to help create life-saving space during the high winds and fire. This is an EMERGENCY!
We have been requested thru Mutual Aid from LA County Animal Control to assist in evacuating Malibu. We have sent our horse trailers and some of our Volunteer Emergency Equine Response Trailer Teams and LAPD mounted trailer teams to the staging area to be deployed.
We are taking in evacuated LA county animals at our East Valley, West Valley and West Los Angeles shelters.
Again, if you can adopt or foster, please go to the closest LA City Animal Service Center to help create life-saving space. laanimalservices.com
