NCO is Accepting Donations to Support Pawnee Fire Survivors
Wednesday, June 27, 2018
North Coast Opportunities, Inc, (NCO) announced on Monday, June 25, that they’ve reopened their wildfire relief fund to support those impacted by the Pawnee Fire. Donations are now being accepted via PayPal at www.ncoinc.org or at 413 N. State Street, Ukiah CA 95482.
In 2015, NCO worked with other area organizations in response to the Rocky, Jerusalem, and Valley Fires. In 2016, NCO reopened the fund in response to the Clayton Fire and again in 2017 in response to the Mendo Lake Complex Fire. With the Pawnee Fire still burning, NCO has once again reopened the Wildfire Relief Fund with hopes to help with recovery needs.”
“At this point the Wildfire Relief Fund is dependent on community donations,” says NCO Executive Director Patty Bruder. Relief will be disbursed by committee determination and/or through NCO’s Disaster Case Managers. “We hope we can raise enough money to begin accepting applications from fire survivors over the coming weeks. Once we’ve determined how much we’ve fundraised, we can begin defining the scope of disbursement, from eligibility, to recovery needs.”
Those interested in donating should contact NCO at 707-467-3200. For more information or to donate please visit www.ncoinc.org.
