How You Can Help Firefighters

Red Cross

MEDFORD, Ore. — Other agencies say there has been an abundance of other donations from the community as well.

Wool socks and things like mouthwash and protein bars have been coming in by the bundles, but those agencies say they are getting too much stuff, and could use some help in other ways. Officials say if you want to help, support the community while people are out on the wildfires.

They also say things like signs and banners on roadways where crews are traveling really shows support. Monetary donations are the main thing that is needed right now. You can donate those to American Red Cross or to “the Wildland Firefighter Foundation”, that organization goes to help injured firefighters and their families

If you have food to donate, organizers say take it to food banks.
