The Camp Fire
The Camp Fire, now California's deadliest and most destructive wildfire ever recorded, is 70 percent contained, after raging for 12 days. Wrapped up in the disaster from the beginning, along with the human residents of Paradise and the neighboring area, have been the animal residents—the pets, working animals, livestock, and wildlife that have also become victims, evacuees, rescuers, and comforters.
We are organizing a drive that will benefit Camp Fire Recovery Fund run by Ventura Count Humane Society. Please come and enjoy a wonderful concert by incredible young musicians at the chapel of the Church of St. Paul and St. Andrew on West 86th St. and West End Ave at 3 pm on December 23rd. Please come, support, participate, and if you can not come donate directly.
