Wildfires in Oregon, Washington, and California over the past week have affected millions. In Oregon alone, over 900,000 acres have burned, 40,000 individuals have been displaced, 10 individuals have died with dozens missing, and scores of homes have been destroyed.
Precoa Gives Back is raising money for the local chapter of the American Red Cross in order to provide support for Oregon and Washington during this time of crisis. Traditional food and clothing donations are problematic due to COVID-19 risks, so the Red Cross is asking for monetary donations.
Due to the terrible combination of COVID-19 infections and hazardous air quality coming from wildfire smoke, we are not able to hold our planned employee events for this season. Instead, we are reallocating that budget to matching donations – Precoa will match all of your donations to the Red Cross, dollar for dollar, up to $10,000.*
All of your donations will go to supporting families in Oregon and SW Washington who have been displaced or lost their homes due to wildfires. The Red Cross is providing safe shelter, clothing, food, and other resources to families at locations around the region. Together, we can make a meaningful difference.
*In order to complete the match and make a donation in a timely manner, Precoa made the match of $5894 on 1 October. Please continue to donate to Red Cross Cascades Region either here or on their website direcly.
