The Portland Trail Blazers have announced the establishment of the Oregon Wildfire Relief Fund Resource Page through American Red Cross, MRG Foundation, United Way, and Wildland Firefighter Foundation.
In a statement posted on their website, the Trail Blazers organization explained what the relief funds' donations will aid in throughout the Oregon community:
"We are devastated by the wildfires that are affecting our state and the entire west coast. Our hearts are with those directly impacted, and we are very thankful for the many brave men and women putting their lives on the line to contain these fires. There are a number of local organizations providing aid to our neighbors and impacted communities in Oregon. Please donate if you’re able and share with others who are interested in contributing." - Portland Trail Blazers
In the most recent reports, 37 active wildfires had burned more than 838,000 acres throughout the state.
