Caldor Relief - How You Can Help
As we are all watching the Caldor Fire situation, many people are asking how they can help. Although firefighters and first responders greatly appreciate the generosity and kindness of donations, firefighting agencies are fully supplied with everything they need.
Donations from the public are logistically complicated to accept and firefighting agencies do not have the capacity to do so. If you would like to offer assistance to those affected by the Caldor Fire, donations are best directed towards evacuees.
Locally, Tahoe Family Solutions and Cornerstone Church are accepting goods to support family needs. Stop by the TFS Thrift Shop on Southwood Boulevard for the most current list of things they are distributing to families throughout Lake Tahoe.
Here are funds that are helping victims of the Caldor Fire:
El Dorado Community Foundation – The El Dorado County Community Foundation set up a Caldor Fire Fund. All donations go to families and individuals impacted by the fire.
