California wildfires continue to rage; CBA asks for help

Posted on 12/13/2017

From our colleagues at the California Bankers Association:

"The multiple Southern California fires raging over the past several days have created massive devastation and loss to so many in our state. Nearly 100,000 people in Southern California have been displaced, and the Thomas Fire has grown to become the fifth-largest wildfire in modern California history. The destruction that these fires have caused is truly heartbreaking, and recovery for these individuals, families and communities will take much time and many resources.

"Financial support for California disaster recovery efforts is desperately needed, and any level of support that you can provide will be greatly appreciated. Relief for those impacted by the fires is being provided by several charitable organizations, including the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army.

"The CBA is making a contribution to the Salvation Army to support their relief efforts, and we hope you will consider making a contribution to one of the organizations as well. We know that this has been a year marked by several natural disasters across our country, but it is absolutely critical that we continue to offer support to those who are so much in need. We would also very much appreciate it if you would share this email with your members as well.

"Please know that we are grateful for the continued support that has been expressed from across the country.

"On behalf of the California banking community, we thank you for your thoughts, prayers and offers of assistance."
