Due to the fires and evacuations in Butte, Napa, Sonoma, Solano, and Lake Counties, as many as 1,000 veterans may be displaced. Veterans Resource Centers of America will be providing rehousing, therapy, case management and referrals for these veterans. Redding VRC is currently mobilizing staff and materials to send to the stricken areas, along with staff to assist in rehousing efforts.
Redding VRC is in need of the following donations to help their efforts:
- Particulate masks
- Men’s and women’s underwear and socks (new in packages and in multiple sizes)
- Nonperishable food items.
These items may be dropped off at the Redding VRC office (153 Hartnell, Suite 100, Redding) during business hours (Mon-Fri, 8am-5pm, closed lunch 12-1pm).
Monetary donations are also appreciated as they will be critical to help those veterans who do not qualify for VRC’s specific low income assistance. Monetary donations may be made in one of two ways:
- Drop off check at the Redding VRC office
- Donate online at www.vetsresource.org. (Click the Donate button at the top right side of the screen.)
