How You Can Help
If you would like to donate, cash donations are preferred because they reduce the amount of labor and the expense of sorting, packing, transporting and distributing donated goods. Relief agencies can use cash to meet survivors’ specific needs more quickly while also supporting local economic recovery.
CaliforniaVolunteers strongly encourages donors to carefully research charitable organizations prior to donating to ensure that their donated funds will have the desired result.

Help Where It's Needed Most

Train NOW for Future Disasters
Following a major disaster, most relief organizations and emergency responder agencies are extremely busy, even if they are outside the affected area. Organizations can become overwhelmed with too many volunteers. The best time to sign-up to volunteer is during a non-disaster time. This allows you to train with a disaster relief organization to be ready when the next emergency strikes.
