Help the animals
Give money to the Los Angeles County Animal Care Foundation, which will support various shelters’ relief efforts.
Give non-perishable food
If you’re not in a position to donate money, you can donate non-perishable food items to the Salvation Army Ventura Corps, which is providing food and shelter to victims and first responders.
There are many places in need of financial support, including the United Way Disaster Relief Fund, the Ventura County Community Foundation’s Hill Fire and Woolsey Fire Sudden and Urgent Needs Effort Fund, and of course American Red Cross. You can also donate directly to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
Volunteer your time
