    Good Morning,

    I was curious if there would be a Local Assistance Center opened for the Camp Fire survivors? I helped at the one for the Carr Fire and know how impactful that was and would like to participate in one here. I am the executive director of the rental housing association and want to help in any way we can.

    My name is Timothy, I am from Sacramento. This morning I am going to ask for donations at my church, and ask for assistance. I am on vacation all next week, and I want to transport and deliver donations to shelters for fire refugees. Please let me know any information about shelters, conditions, access, or anything about the fires that I cannot see on this or other web sites. I am planning and would need the information for logistic purposes. Also, if you live in Sacramento and want to donate or participate, please contact me by e-mail. God Be With Us.
