Lane County Wildfire Information and Relief

We are directing all donations to the United Way of Lane County’s Wildfire Response Fund at this time. 

As fires continue to burn in the McKenzie Valley and elsewhere in Lane County, we are only beginning to understand the devastation. Though concerned about the damage to the forest and impacts to the river, we know they will recover with time. Members of the communities of Blue River, Vida, and neighboring areas urgently need your help now. You can make an immediate difference by giving generously to United Way of Lane County’s Wildfire Response Fund.
Today, United Way launched this Wildfire Response Fund focused on supporting nonprofits and community organizations that are assisting community members who have experienced the loss of a home or business, or are otherwise impacted as a result of Lane County wildfires. Funds raised will support nonprofit agencies in Lane County working directly to meet the needs of families and individuals affected by the fire. Now is the time for all of us to come together. Please give and share this link: https://www.unitedwaylane.org/wildfires

Nonprofits and community organizations can apply for funding through this link: https://www.unitedwaylane.org/wildfire-fund-application
