The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency authorized the use of federal funds to help California pay for fighting the Sayre Fire in Los Angeles County.

FEMA funding is available to reimburse 75 percent of the eligible firefighting costs, which can include expenses for field camps; equipment use, repair and replacement; tools, materials and supplies; and mobilization and demobilization activities.

Goodwill Southern California (GSC) is partnering for a second consecutive year with the American Red Cross of Greater Los Angeles to accept gently used clothing and household items to assist victims of recent wildfires.

The American Red Cross partners with other community agencies and organizations such as Goodwill to accommodate people who want to donate items.

The value of the donation translates into a free voucher, assigned through the American Red Cross.

Voucher recipients are given the freedom and dignity to shop with the voucher at any Goodwill Southern California store, allowing a wider choice in selection and also more time to shop at the customer's convenience.

To donate items for relief efforts, go to any one of Goodwill Southern California's 100-plus locations throughout Los Angeles (north of Rosecrans), Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

GSC's online address is Phone (888) 4-GOODWILL and press the number one.
