Supporting Northern & Southern California Wildfire Relief
Three wildfires are actively burning in Northern and Southern California. So far, thousands of people have been displaced, and many have lost their lives.
The Camp Fire in Northern California has burned more than 100,000 acres and is the most destructive fire in the state’s history. The Woolsey and Hill fires in Southern California have burned more than 85,000 acres.
The Community Foundation of Louisville desires to share timely and trusted information about response efforts, and has curated opportunities for local donors who may wish to support relief and recovery efforts.
