TAGGED AS: 1st United News

The news of Northern California fires is devastating and our hearts go out to the communities affected. The road to recovery for those impacted will be a long one but there are ways you can help.


Donate to the American Red Cross. Be sure you specify your donation is for the California wildfire victims.

Donate to the Sonoma County Resilience Fund. The fund is overseen by the Community Foundation of Sonoma County and pledges to “focus on the mid- to long-term tasks of recovery and rebuilding, which will include basic needs as well as longer term economic, health and social supports.”

Donations can also be made to the Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund.


As of Wednesday, Petaluma, Santa Rosa, and Napa posted on Facebook that no more food or supply donations were needed at this time. They encourage monetary donations to help victims recover.


If you would like to volunteer, you are encouraged to sign up at the Center for Volunteer and Nonprofit Leadership or the Red Cross. A representative from the organization will contact you for placement.


If you are a 1st United Credit Union member who has been personally impacted and may be in need of assistance in keeping your financial obligations, please contact us. We can be reached at (800) 649-0193 or by email.

Please reach out so that we can discuss options that may be available to you at this difficult time.
