This fund has been set up for homeowners and renters who have lost everything. There have been 250+ homes destroyed in our community.

Your donation is 100% tax deductible. All monies will be distributed, we are an all -volunteer board and therefore, 100% of funds collected will be distributed. All donations are welcome no matter the amount.

Please be prepared to provide your name, physical address, contact phone number, whether you had insurance and the loss you sustained. We will require proof of residency.

For any additional questions regarding donating to the fund please contact Deborah Hess at (760) 379-5257, extension 24 or any Alta One branch.
