The Community Foundation of the North State announces the establishment of the Happy Camp Relief Fund to receive donations for those in the North State impacted by the Slater Fire in the Happy Camp community.
“We now know that the impact of the Slater Fire presents a huge challenge for the residents of Happy Camp to meet the needs for recovery from this disastrous event,” said Kerry Caranci, Chief Executive Officer of the Community Foundation of the North State. “As a result of this documented need, we have enabled the Happy Camp Relief Fund to accept donations towards the immediate, short and long-term recovery of our neighbors and partners.”
In previous wildfire disasters, the Community Foundation accepted and disbursed donations received in response to the 2014 Boles Fire in Weed, and the 2018 Carr Fire in Redding. The Community Foundation has a credible history of helping regional nonprofits and organizations with the ability to deliver monetary assistance efficiently and effectively toward the relief and recovery of communities impacted.
Questions and more information about this fund are available by contacting the Community Foundation at 530-244-1219 or the Siskiyou County office at 530-925-3313.
