CHICO (CBS SF) — The massive Camp Fire has left a path of destruction in its wake through the devastated community of Paradise. There are many ways to help victims of the wildfire, whether it be monetary, material, volunteering or providing shelter.

The American Red Cross is accepting monetary donations by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS or texting REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. You can also click the link below for information on volunteering.

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative is providing a 3 to 1 match for donations — up to a total donation of $750,000.  Learn more at the organization’s fundraising page.

The Salvation Army has its own hotline number 1-800-SAL-ARMY. If you call, you can designate your donation to Camp Fire aid.

The San Francisco 49ers raised over $100,000 for fire relief through the team’s 50/50 raffle held during its Monday Night Football game against the New York Giants with the team matching funds.

    Thank you for all the links for giving aid. We would also like to help the animal shelter, featured on this morning’s early news, with their Amazon wish list, but can’t find it. Has anyone got the name of the shelter, or a link please?
