Paradise Relief Effort 2019

On November 8th, a massive wildfire tore through the California mountain communities north of Sacramento. This fire being the deadliest since 1918, destroyed 95% of the city of Paradise and severely effected neighboring towns Concow and Magalia. The fire covered 153,336 acres of land, destroyed 18,804 buildings and home and caused 86 civilian fatalities. After 17 days, the fire was contained on November 25, 2018. The San Francisco Conservation Corps was invited to provide relief assistance by our sister Corp, San Jose Conservation Corps. Together we worked to provide relief to suffering animals of Paradise fires, assist them in getting vital care, and provide care for Paradise residents by sorting and distributing food and clothing. SFCC is very thankful for the opportunity to work hand and hand with the San Jose Conservation Corps, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the U.S. Military to bring light to humanity through service.
