Call to Quilters: How to Help the California Fire Victims


All of our hearts go out to those affected by the most deadly fire in California’s history. Many of you have called AQS asking how to help. Because so many have lost everything, financial support is the critical need at this time. Here are some ways you can help:

Donate money

There are many places in need of financial support. Please reach out to the United Way Disaster Relief Fund, the Ventura County Community Foundation and the American Red Cross.

Support Animal Shelters

Donations to the Los Angeles County Animal Care Foundation support various shelters’ relief efforts.

Salvation Army

If you’re not in a position to donate money, you can donate non-perishable food items to the Salvation Army Ventura Corps, which is providing food and shelter to victims and first responders.

Fire Relief Funds

The California Community Foundation’s Wildfire Relief Fund supports intermediate and long-term recovery efforts for major California wildfires, as well as preparedness efforts. The California Fire Foundation’s Supplying Aid to Victims of Emergency (SAVE) program is also providing emergency financial assistance to fire victims.

In the November issue of AQ, you spotlighted a quilter from Paradise, California, Melinda Bula. The town has been destroyed and lives lost. It is a sad time. Have we heard any news of Melinda?
Thank you for giving us ways to help out.
