The California Camp Fire took 17 days to be fully contained. The destruction the Camp Fire caused to Butte County, California—most notably Paradise, Magalia and Concow — cannot be understated:
- $16.5 billion in damage (of which only $12.5 billion was insured)
- Over 153,000 acres were burned
- 18,804 buildings were destroyed
- 86 people died
- 17 people were injured
- 3 people are still missing
The Fire is the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California history. It is the sixth-deadliest U.S. wildfire of all time, and the deadliest since the Cloquet fire in 1918. It was also the world’s costliest natural disaster in 2018. The amount of destruction caused by the Camp Fire is the kind rarely seen in modern history.
We are helping to rebuild Paradise, Magalia and Concow.
But we can’t do it alone, we need your help. We still need more. Of everything.
We need more necessities. And we need more funds to buy these necessities and provide these services.
Please help by making a tax-deductible donation to the National Victim Support Network to support the Cap Fire Team’s efforts.
The people affected by the Camp Fire are of all ages, and from all walks of life. They are someone’s grandparent, someone’s parent, someone’s sibling, and someone’s child.
Your tax-deductible donation can help us rebuild Paradise, Magalia and Concow and make life normal again for the victims of the Camp Fire. Help us help them by donating today. To donate simply click on the Camp Fire Support Donation Form link below.

I’m not from paradise. I didn’t lose my home in Butte County. I was trying to help almost immediately on Paradise Adopt a Family Facebook page.
My Husband and I helped with go-fund-me’s, donations and wish lists.
Being the wife of a retired firefighter and paramedic of 36 years, we sought out to adopt a firefighter family that lost all.
We are still in touch and follow the needs of our adopted family/families.
We had been helping here and there and I wanted to do more and try to make a difference, so I decided to do a birthday month fundraiser on Facebook in January. Having made many trips to deliver donations of clothing household items and furniture, I sought out the best way to use my funds.
I realized there was a never-ending need for propane, which is used for heating, cooking and showering, and I was determined to meet that need.
The birth of CAMPAIGN PROPANE OPERATION WARMTH was launched.
I took my idea to Angela DeCarli of DeCarli’ s Propane in Petaluma, California and we came up with the perfect solution to help those now living in trailers and temporary housing that were trying to desperately make ends meet for their family.
With your donation of $44.95 to De Carli’s Propane, that will buy one 5-gallon tank, or a donation $91.85 will buy a 7-gallon tank for a survivor and their family.
De Carli’s will then fill it for free and my Campaign will deliver the tanks to survivors of the Butte County Camp Fire.
To further my Campaign, I enlisted the help of the National Victim Support Network to assist with donations and organization for a larger campaign.
If you are unable to make the requested monetary donation, any donation will help and go directly to the Propane Campaign under the direction of myself. All donations are tax deductible as the National Victim Support Network is a Section 501 (c) (3) public charity. Help me Help them!
