At Willis Allen Real Estate, we’ve always placed an emphasis on community. Many of our agents and staff have friends, family members, and former colleagues who have been directly impacted by the current wildfires, and we are looking beyond our immediate San Diego community to help our fellow Californians however we can.
Everyone deserves a place to call home. Our mission does not end with buying and selling though, it extends far beyond that to the families that build a life within the walls of every house. This is why we at Willis Allen Real Estate want to make a direct and impactful contribution. We’re hoping you can help us reach our fundraising goal of $20,000.
California is experiencing one of the worst fire seasons to date. During the month of August, an unusual amount of lightning strikes sparked fires across the northern part of the state. Two of the three largest fires in California’s history are burning simultaneously and communities in places like the Santa Cruz Mountains and the wine country north of the San Francisco Bay are experiencing exceptional devastation.
With the number of fires overwhelming the available crews, state officials are being forced to prioritize which incidents will get resources and focus on saving lives and structures at the expense of trying to contain the fires. That means some of the blazes could burn for weeks and continue to displace thousands from their homes.
We are hoping to be able to make a difference by raising money to benefit the Community Foundation Santa Cruz County (CFSCC). All funds raised will go directly to the wildfire relief efforts in the Northern California area.
Willis Allen Real Estate has pledged $5,000 to this fundraiser, already putting us at 25% of our goal. Please consider making a donation- even the smallest amount helps!
