I put this in a comment on my earlier post, but I figured I should make a new post with the information.
Giselle is our representative with Sister Carmen Community Center, and they are helping people impacted by the fires. They can use a number of donated items:
- sleeping bags
- gift cards, especially to restaurants or Walmart
Sister Carmen also welcomes monetary donations, which will pay for hotel rooms for people who need a place to stay.
You can find out more at their website.HERE
Please no food or bottled water at this time, but check their website for updates, as what is needed will change over time.
You can drop off donations directly to Sister Carmen Community Center or contact Giselle at firstname.lastname@example.org and make arrangements to drop them off at her house in Lafayette.
Please feel free to comment below with other ways to help. If YOU need help or someone to talk with, please don't hesitate to reach out to this group, or me personally (contact info in previous post). We are your community, and we are here for you.
