BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The North Valley Community Foundation (NVCF) has activated a relief fund and issued grants for Bear Fire victims.

The Bear Fire exploded overnight in Butte County. 

The NVCF activated its Wildfire Relief and Recovery Fund and quickly issued their first three grants. They include $10,000 to the American Red Cross for the evacuation center in Gridley, $5,000 to North Valley Animal Disaster Group for its work evacuating and sheltering animals, and $5,000 to the Boys and Girls Clubs of the North Valley for sheltering efforts.

Learn more about the fund and how to donate by clicking here. With thousands of people evacuated and an inability to gather people in large settings because of the coronavirus, the NVCF says it anticipates the need will be immense.

The Bear Fire is part of the North Complex, which has burned more than 250,000 acres and has overrun foothill communities. It has also impacted part of the area burned in the Camp Fire in 2018.
