We have the best community! Thank you for all the donations. The County continues to get calls from people who want to donate to those who lost their homes in the Wall Fire. The County is not collecting donations, but has created a Facebook Thread so those who are collecting donations, those who are in need, or those who want to give can connect. The County in no way recommends, vets, or sanctions any of the comments in this thread. This is simply a place for the conversation to happen.

We continue to be proud and humbled by the generosity of our community in times of need. We have been through a lot, and everyday people have stepped up to care for others when they need it most. Thank you.  

As always, you can support the local community by donating online.
