Fire Relief Fund Established for Victims of Chelan Valley Wildfires
Chelan Valley Fire Relief Fund
The Community Foundation of NCW has established the Chelan Valley Fire Relief Fund to help support relief and recovery to those affected by the wildfires across the Chelan Valley.
“We are concerned about our friends, families and businesses in the Chelan Valley” said Jennifer Dolge, the foundation’s Director of Communications. “Unfortunately, we’ve become experienced with establishing and managing fire relief funds – they provide an effective giving vehicle for people who want to help and 100% of the donations go to support the victims. We want the Chelan community to know the people of North Central Washington care about them and are here to help.”
The Community Foundation of NCW now manages multiple fire relief funds that are used to help fire victims through transition and provide financial assistance and access to resources for long term recovery.
Those seeking immediate needs such as food and housing or donation of items should contact the Red Cross who have set up shelters in Entiat and East Wenatchee. For evacuation information, residents and concerned citizens can contact Chelan Emergency Management at 509-667-6863. The Wenatchee World is also providing regular updates on the fire’s status.
