Hello MMS Community,
 
If you have been thinking about how to help victims of the current California wildfires, follow this LINK to a Union Tribune article that lists various organizations in Ventura, Los Angeles, and Butte Counties that are accepting donations.  
 
There are a variety of organizations that are striving to help fire victims with food and shelter, fire fighters with needed daily supplies, and displaced animals*. Some take online payments and some are as easy as sending a text. There are one or two addresses for sending physical donations, but most of these organizations are currently requesting monetary donations.
 
Please do your own research on these charitable organizations to ensure your donations will have the desired result. The California Office of the Attorney General's Charities website can help with this:  https://oag.ca.gov/charities
 
This note is not meant as a solicitation but as a starting point for those wanting to help and not sure where to begin.
 
Warm Regards,
Josie
(Coordinator, MMS Parent Group)
