Cal Water & Utility Workers Union of America Camp Fire Relief Fund

Contact: Justin Skarb


Fund Purpose

California Water Service (Cal Water) and the Utility Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO have partnered with the North Valley Community Foundation to establish a fund to support organizations assisting families who lost their homes in the Camp Fire, including organizations positioned to provide assistance to affected Cal Water employees.

Cal Water will match the first $25,000 of contributions made to the Camp Fire Relief Fund before November 26, 2018, effectively doubling your individual contribution.

The Relief Fund will first focus on supporting the needs of organizations that opened their doors to the people who lost their homes in the fire, working to ensure these organizations have whatever they need to continue providing these vital services. After the immediate crisis from the Camp Fire subsides, the Relief Fund will transition to supporting long-term recovery efforts in the area and rebuilding the communities where Cal Water’s employees live.

25% of the contributions to the Cal Water & Utility Workers Union of America Camp Fire Relief Fund will be disbursed to the Chico Posse Foundation, a local non-profit organization focused on providing direct assistance to those in need, including Cal Water’s employees affected by the Camp Fire.
