Between a mass shooting and the amount of relentless fire, California has had it pretty rough this last week. But as the wildfires continue to burn, the need for supplies for both victims and firefighters only grows with them. For those of you who feel helpless and want to send more than just thoughts and prayers, here are a few quick ways you can help in form of donations, supplies and volunteer opportunities.

LAFD Foundation (@LAFDfoundation)

Visit them on Instagram (link above) or go to SupportLAFD.org to support firefighters and first responders who have worked endlessly with the California fire and are extremely low on sleep, water and supplies. Donations will go towards hydration packs, sunscreen and much more.
