Raising funds to help the victims of the California fires

by Katie Jansen on Nov 29, 2018

Last year, Sonoma County was ravaged by the Tubbs fire, which burned over 36,000 acres and decimated 5,636 buildings. To help those displaced, we raised over $31,000 for the Redwood Credit Union Community North Bay Fire Relief Fund.

This month, California suffered the most devastating wildfire in the state’s history. The Camp Fire in Butte County burned over 153,300 acres and destroyed over 13,900 homes. In helping to get victims back on their feet, we’re partnering with the American Red Cross to raise money. Right now, more than 890 people remain displaced and are being helped by as many as 600 Red Cross disaster workers at support shelters.

AppLovin employees and their friends and family have raised $10,435, and AppLovin will triple this amount for a total of $31,305 raised. We thank everyone who was able to donate and help those impacted by the fires.  The loss these communities are suffering is tragic. 

Please consider donating to the American Red Cross to help those in need.
