Three Ways to Support the Victims of the Almeda Fire

Here are three things you can do to support the Rogue Valley as we heal from these devastating fires:

1) Volunteer! If you’d like to volunteer to support people who have been displaced by these fires please fill out this form here or email rvfirerelief@gmail.com.

2) Donate to the Rogue Valley Relief Fund. This is a new fund that we’ve launched in partnership with the Mackenzie River Gathering Foundation and other organizations in the Rogue Valley to support urgent needs in Southern Oregon. Already, this fund has gotten thousands of dollars into the hands of community members impacted by these fires. Donate online here.

3) Drop off emergency supplies for people who have been displaced by the fire­ at 770 Faith Ave, Ashland and in 360 E Jackson, Medford. Check out the list of current supply needs below this email.

Climate change is real and is a contributory factor to the intense fire season we are seeing this summer. As always, we will fight together for climate justice, and for a healthy, safe, green Southern Oregon. Today we do this by delivering supplies to those harmed by this fire. Tomorrow we will do it by building a new world together.

Like the phoenix, we will rise from the ashes.

Thanks,
