We would like to thank the public for the outpouring of support and generosity for those who are impacted by the Holy Fire and the emergency responders who are fighting the fire. Our emergency staff are deployed to the firefighting efforts and are not able to assist with the pick-up and distribution of the provisions and supplies that have been contributed.
We would instead ask that the public direct contributions to the Red Cross or to a trusted charity to assist those affected by the fire. Contact the American Red Cross at 714- 481-5300 and RedCross.org.
