The Salvation Army Responds to Growing Wildfires in Southern California

Dec 8, 2017 | by SNW

Hundreds of Los Angeles county residents have been displaced from their homes due to wildfires that have spread throughout Southern California. These fires are expected to grow due to dry conditions and the Santa Ana winds, leaving evacuees to depend on emergency shelters for refuge and basic necessities.

The Salvation Army has been on-site at two emergency shelters- Nordhoff High School and the Ventura County Fairground, delivering food and supplies to evacuees and first responders. Over 1500 meals have been distributed at these locations for the Thomas Fire, and over 700 snacks and meals have been handed out in Sylmar and at the Skirball fire.

The Salvation Army will continue to provide emergency disaster services, for as long as we are needed. To donate to the fire relief efforts, please visit .
