Resiliency Fund Volunteers

“How Can I Help?”

In September 2020, the Creek Fire raged through many mountain communities including the area surrounding Shaver Lake and Huntington Lake.

In the wake of such a disaster, it didn’t take long for many to begin asking the same question, “how can I help?”. This human drive to help is a passion from within, coming from a need to feel connected in uncertain times, and a desire to make an incredible impact. We are grateful for your interest in volunteering with the Resiliency Fund and want to help you understand the roles and opportunities available.

If you have any questions about volunteering, or if your organization is in need of volunteers to help with Creek Fire relief efforts, please contact us at
