On the heels of the tragic events in Thousand Oaks, Ventura County now faces additional threats in the form of wildfires that broke out yesterday afternoon.

The Hill Fire and Woolsey Fire have already destroyed dozens of homes and continue to spread. Ventura County Community Foundation has set up the Hill Fire/Woolsey Fire Sudden and Urgent Needs Effort Fund as a vehicle to collect the generous donations from our community.

We will post more information on the VCCF Facebook page. In the meantime, consider making a contribution to support a community in need.

This Fund is designed to support the immediate needs of community nonprofit organizations serving those affected by these wildfires. VCCF continues to monitor the status of these fires and is in active communication with government and public safety officials.
