This holiday season, we'd like to help the families affected by the fires in California. We will be supporting the California Fire Foundation (http://www.cafirefoundation.org/) which has some great programs like SAVe (Supplying Aid to Victims of Emergency) to help displaced families get through this difficult time and get back on their feet. They also help educate the community on fire safety, and through their Fire Prevention Fund, provide grants for projects that will help prevent future fires in California.  


You can read more about SAVE by watching this video or reading below: 

"As part of the California Fire Foundation’s mission to provide victim assistance, it’s Supplying Aid to Victims of Emergency (SAVE) program provides emergency short-term financial assistance to fire and natural disaster victims in California year-round, including both firefighters and civilians. The California Fire Foundation has mobilized direct assistance to those who’ve suffered catastrophic losses in the Camp Fire and Woolsey Fire.

Through Foundation’s Supplying Aid to Victims of Emergency (SAVE) program, CPF local affiliates and their fire departments can be on-site, with thousands of SAVE Mastercard gift-cards. The $100 SAVE gift-cards are provided to those suffering substantial property loss with immediate on-site assistance. Earlier this year 800 SAVE gift-cards were provided to victims of the Carr Fire, and in 2017 over 2,700 SAVE gift-cards were provided to victims of wildfires."
