Weed, CA using Recovers for #BolesFire recovery


Recovers powers #BolesFire recovery

Last week, the city of Weed, CA was devastated by a fire that destroyed 110 homes and forced the evacuation of nearly 2,000 residents. To help organize the city’s recovery efforts, the site Weed.Recovers.org has been adopted by the local organizations and government, serving as the central, online hub where residents can offer and request help.

The organizations and volunteers on-the-ground are doing an amazing job meeting the needs of their community. Currently, the Weed.Recovers.org site:

  • is connecting 18 local organizations,
  • has provided information to more than 3000 people,
  • is actively being used to meet the needs of survivors.
