Now that the Camp Fire has been fully contained, we must begin looking down the long road to recovery for Butte County. The devastation left in the wake of this fire is vast and will be affecting survivors for years to come. California Volunteers would like to thank the companies, foundations, NGO’s and the public for their willingness to step up to help the survivors of this devastating wildfire. There is still a monumental amount of work to be done. Information on how to continue supporting survivors can be found at the links below.
