The Clayton Fire has swept across over 4,000 acres of Lake County, just two hours north of San Francisco. At least 175 buildings have been destroyed, including many homes. Many who see the devastation wonder how they can help. Below are a few organizations aiding the affected communities in Lake County.

  • North Coast Opportunities has reopened its fire relief fund from the 2015 Lake County wildfires. NCO has a mission of assisting low-income and disadvantaged people. It provides emergency assistance, employment and training services. It's working with other local organizations to quickly respond to immediate needs.
  • The Habitat for Humanity offices in Lower Lake burned down in the Clayton Fire, but the organization is already looking ahead to help rebuild the community. The organization is accepting donations, which will go towards rebuilding the homes of Lake County fire victims.
  • The American Red Cross has a team on the ground to assist sheltering the displaced people of Lake County. Click here to donate.
