The Idea Is Appreciated, But Don't Bring Cookies To Firefighters Battling Santa Barbara County Fires

Jul 12, 2017

Firefighters on both the Whittier and Alamo fires say while they appreciate efforts by community members to donate food and other items to them, they have ample supplies.

They say if you want to help, you should contact relief groups like the American Red Cross, or your community food bank.

They also caution people about contributing to GoFundMe efforts unless they verify them first, because unfortunately people do try to take advantage of the goodwill of others during emergencies.
