Donate To California Wildfire Victims

You've seen the devastation from the Southern California wildfires, now how can you help the millions who've been displaced from their homes? Many East Texans want to know how they can lend a helping hand and what evacuees need the most.

National agencies are responding with food, clothes, and other items.  KLTV found out organizations here in East Texas are doing their part by accepting financial donations for those who have lost everything.

"The way the Red Cross helps is to offer financial support so evacuees can go buy bed linens, go get thier medications, go buy some new clothes," said Susan Campbell with the Smith County Red Cross.

If you would like to donate there a number of ways. You can give online at with your credit card or also by calling 1-800-red-cross and paying over the phone.

If you wish to write a check, make it out "to california wildfires" and mail to the Smith County Red Cross at:

P.O. Box 8588
