Community Dive: Give a Little

No matter where you are, finding a way to make an impact is easy. Just join our community and get involved today!

Need some motivation?

So often we can get bogged down in the details of what it is that we’re doing, or how long it’ll take to make long-lasting change, that we forget about the impact we can make right now. I explore this and my reasons for giving back in this week's blog post - check it out!

Don't forget to vote!

Today is election day! If you haven’t voted yet, find your local polling place here. Don’t let other people decide your community’s future without your voice.

Battling fires in California

Since it ignited on Wednesday, October 23rd, the Kincade Fire has burned through nearly 80,000 acres, destroying 374 structures, including 174 homes. Another 60 structures were damaged, 35 of which were homes. Despite being nearly 82% contained, there are still ways that you can help those impacted. Find out how, here.

For those impacted by SoCal fires or interested in lending a hand, the Red Cross and Caring Choices are currently assessing how community volunteers can best support those in need. You can also donate directly to the Los Angeles Fire Department and support the brave men and women who have been tirelessly battling the flames.
