CHICO, Calif. - One of the largest phone carriers in the United States is making it easier to donate to the Red Cross during the Camp Fire devastation, by simply sending a text message.


People can donate $10 to the Red Cross by texting the word “CAWILDFIRE” to 90999, and it will be charged on your next phone bill.


T-Mobile has deployed numerous trucks in the Chico community to allow those displaced to charge their cellphones, receive devices for free and get a hot spot for the internet.


Action News Now spoke to Rich Garwood, vice president of southwestern T-Mobile for California, and he says his company is very supportive to everyone affected by the Camp Fire.
