Your contribution is needed to help fire victims!

Posted: Updated:
KHQ.COM - People across the Northwest have shown their desire to help those affected by the Carlton Complex fire burning in Okanogan County. The fire has claimed 150 homes and burned over 250,000 acres becoming the largest wildfire in Washington State history. With your help, we have managed to make a big impact in helping the victims get back on their feet.

Since Monday, July 22nd, thousands of people in this community have come together and participated in the "Q6 Cares, Inland NW Shares" drive. Collectively, this drive raised tens of thousands of dollars for the Apple Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross Disaster Relief efforts. This money will go towards helping those affected by the devastating wildfires in Central and Eastern Washington and countless other disasters the Apple Valley Chapter responds to. We also received more than 85,000 pounds of donated items such as clothes, toys, non-perishable food, water and pet supplies. It's not too late to help.

Representatives say the best way the public can help is by donating to Disaster Relief at www.RedCross.org. Financial donations to Disaster Relief allow the Red Cross to be flexible in the help that they provide and ensure that they can give people what they need most as more weather related disasters continue to impact residents across Eastern Washington. You may also call the Red Cross hotline at 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767) to make a donation (select option 4 at the prompt) or text REDCROSS to 90999 to add a $10 donation to disaster relief to your phone bill.
