The best way to help evacuees is to make a financial contribution. Monetary donations allow disaster responders to immediately meet the specific needs of the disaster. 100% of your donation stays in Oregon to respond directly to the needs of those impacted by the Oregon Wildfires. There are a variety of ways the public can support The Salvation Army’s disaster relief efforts:
