Carr Fire Veteran's Assistance and Relief Fund

Responding to a need to help veterans in particular who have been adversely impacted by the Carr Fire in the general Redding area, Post 441established the CFVA&R Fund to provide financial aid to qualified veterans with a DD-214 or other acceptable proof of military service.  It is recognized and understood that although vets will have access to FEMA, insurance and other community-oriented funds, the spigot for assistance doesn't get turned on until all of the paperwork has been completed and related decisions made; in the meantime, people need financial aid.  

Even after aid starts flowing, there will still be veterans who are adversely impacted by the effects of the devastating fire, so the relief efforts will need to continue and be available to some extent after other funding dries up.  

Post 441, of course,  is not situated directly in the impacted area.  American Legion Auxiliary Unit 197 in Redding, which has experience in providing assistance to veterans through the North Valley Veterans Stand Down, has agreed to qualify those in need of assistance and to handle the distribution of funds. 

Fund raising efforts will continue until the need runs out.  Donations can be made to American Legion Post 441, PO Box 1077, Burney, CA 96013.  Please note "CFVA&R Fund" in the bottom, left-hand portion of the check or money order.  American Legion Post 441 is a 501c (19) corporation; all donors will be provided with a receipt and our tax identification number.
