San Jose, Calif., Aug. 26, 2018 – From August 02 -19, the Tzu Chi USA gave $226,100 in emergency cash cards to benefit 394 families affected by the recent western wildfires, including Carr Fire and Mendocino Complex Fire. Tzu Chi USA’s volunteers’ efforts continue as we strive to reach as many affected families as possible. We will host four more disaster relief distributions August 26th through the 29th from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM at the former Kmart building located at 2658 Hilltop Drive in Redding.

“It's wonderful the work that you guys do. It touched my heart to know that you are known to the communities, and that you offer services that survivors really need.”

Rachel Magana, Program Representative, Cal OES

Tzu Chi USA provides not only financial aid but spiritual support- necessary to overcome a trauma.  We strongly encourage as many shares of our online registration form as possible to inform affected families that they can begin to receive aid via www.tzuchi.us/wildfire-relief-for-carr-fire-survivors.
