‘Funds will support local relief efforts now and through the remainder of the fire season’
VACAVILLE, CA – The Travis Credit Union Foundation is immediately accepting donations to address urgent local needs due to the LNU Complex Fire, the second largest in California history. With four more months of potential fire season to go, many of our community members have already been forced to evacuate or have lost their homes.
The donations will bring immediate financial assistance to the victims, firefighters and communities that have been affected by the wildfires. Travis Credit Union is covering all administrative costs, so that 100 percent of all donations will go directly towards supporting recovery efforts in the local service area.
“The wildfires are taking a massive toll on our communities and residents of Solano, Yolo and Napa counties,” said Barry Nelson, president and CEO of Travis Credit Union. “The generosity of those who wish to give will help as we continue to support the needs of the most affected.”
Donations will provide funding for those in need of shelter, food, clothing and cash for necessities. The TCU Foundation will support both immediate disaster relief as well as recovery efforts for the remainder of the wildfire season.
“We are proud to be an organization that operates under the philosophy of ‘people helping people,’ and encourage all who are moved to contribute, to do so,” said Nelson. “Our hearts go out to all who have experienced such devastation. We know their needs are great, and will continue to grow.”
