Sep 29, 2021

Massive wildfires have over 58,000 people evacuating from their homes in California and Nevada. The fires are continuing to spread and are now reaching the Lake Tahoe basin.

Red Cross Western Wildfire Response And Recovery

“My heart is so heavy. Having grown up at the base of Jobs Peak just down Kingsbury Grade from Lake Tahoe, I can’t comprehend this fire raging through such an incredibly beautiful place,” said Mary Powell, Executive Director, American Red Cross Northern Nevada.

Right now, Ergify’s flagship ergonomic seating brand, Via Seating, has offered to match any donations up to $5000 to help the efforts of the Red Cross. Via Seating is based nearby in Sparks, Nevada.

Evacuees have filled shelter sites across California and Nevada. Hundreds of Red Cross volunteers are helping serve tens of thousands of meals and distribute thousands of relief items including comfort kits, wildfire kits, and other supplies.

The Red Cross is a nimble, dynamic, and compassionate organization filled with skilled staff and volunteers who have moved mountains to take care of people. Their partner agencies, emergency managers, and countless generous citizens have helped to fill many needs including food, health services, mental health support, and even entertainment.

Red Cross is prepared for the coming days, weeks, and months but their resources are stretched. This operation is going to go on long after the headlines have died down. They will need to help the people whose homes are lost or will be lost in the coming days.
