With more than 1,000 homes and buildings, and 140,000 acres burned, the Butte and Valley fires are the most destructive wildfires in California state history. Over the past week, the fires are less than half contained, and thousands more structures are threatened. More than 20,000 of our fellow Californians have been displaced. A growing number of people have lost everything, while others are relying on shelters until they can go back and assess the damage.
The fires are hitting close to home for us at Pinterest, including an employee whose family was directly impacted. We hope you’ll join our employees in supporting the wildfire relief fund to help victims get access to basic supplies at evacuation centers, as they start to rebuild and get back on their feet.
