BENEFITING: SAN DIEGO FIRE RESCUE
Please show your appreciation for the insanely hard, tireless, passionate, determined work by Station 46 and all of the San Diego firefighters and first responders. They came from all over San Diego and North County to help and worked through 100 degree heat all week to help save our families, pets and homes. Truly amazing, heroic work. Now it’s time to say thank you.
This fundraiser will support the San Diego Fire Rescue Foundation, a 501(c)3 charity based in San Diego and founded by former firefighters. When you donate, you can designate a specific Fire Station or leave it blank and the funds will be used by the San Diego Fire Rescue Foundation to put toward the areas of greatest need. Station 46 is the fire station for Santaluz.
Any dollar amount is appreciated but $150 will pay for one "Last Chance Rescue Filter" which, according to several fire stations, is much needed for all of the San Diego firefighters.
ABOUT THE SAN DIEGO FIRE RESCUE FOUNDATION:
The San Diego Fire Rescue Foundation is a 501(c)3 charity based in San Diego and founded by former firefighters. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. The mission of the Foundation is to provide San Diego first responders with the necessary funding to purchase critically needed equipment, technology, and training required to keep the property and citizens of San Diego and the surrounding region safe from the ravages of fire, natural disasters, and unforeseen injuries and illness.
Ten major fires have destroyed at least eight houses, an 18-unit condominium complex and two businesses since Tuesday. The hardest-hit areas were in San Marcos and Carlsbad, a suburb of 110,000 people.
To the north crews battled two fires at Camp Pendleton, including one that broke out Thursday and grew overnight from 600 acres to 8,000. The second fire, sparked Wednesday on the eastern outskirts of the Marine base, scorched nearly 10 square miles of dry brush.
This week's wildfires have driven tens of thousands from their homes and shut down schools. Flames have caused more than $20 million in damage.
Please make a donation so we can show the firefighters how much the San Diego community appreciates their heroic efforts to protect our families, pets and homes.
