IBEW 1245 Wildfire Relief Fund

$7,700 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 64 people in 15 months
Created October 11, 2017

29 members of IBEW 1245 have lost their homes and all of their belongings in the devastating series of wildfires that swept through the North Bay. 

These brothers and sisters need our help and support.
Please donate what you can. Every little bit can make a difference for a 1245 family in need. If each member donates just $1, that would add up to $20,000, so truly, no amount is too small, please give what you can.

The funds collected through this site will be withdrawn by the union via check, divided up and distributed directly to the effected 1245 members via check, which will be delivered to them by their Business Reps.

These funds are intended to help them begin the long and ardurous process of rebuilding their homes and lives. We expect that they may use these funds to replace lost belongings such as clothing and personal items, assist with a down payment or deposit on a new residence, begin reconstruction at the site of their former residence, and purchase basic necessities.

We also invite you to leave a message of support below, and share this page on your social networks. 

In Unity,
Tom Dalzell
Business Manager and Financial Secretary
IBEW 1245
