The Community Foundation – which serves San Bernardino and Riverside Counties – has committed the first $100,000 to the fund and encourages others to join in their concern for those whose lives have been affected by this disaster.
“We are deeply concerned about the High Desert community and the devastation we are witnessing in the wake of this horrific fire,” said Dr. Jonathan Lorenzo Yorba, President and CEO of The Community Foundation.
“By providing this grant, we hope to inspire more giving to the Fire Relief Fund at the Inland Empire United Way, and to support the recovery efforts of the many nonprofit organizations that are providing critical services to fire victims in our region.”
County of San Bernardino First District Supervisor, Robert Lovingood, offered his support saying “The Blue Cut fire has devastated many families. Just as the community rallied during the peak of the fire, now it is even more important for all of us to come together to support those who have lost homes, pets, vehicles and all of their worldly possessions. I hope you will find it in your heart to give generously to this Blue Cut Fire Relief Fund. 100% of the proceeds will go to help victims rebuild their lives.”
