The Board of Supervisors and County Administrator extend our sincere condolences and support to those suffering the devastating impacts of wildfires that swept across parts of Northern and Southern California in late 2017 and the subsequent mudslides that struck Santa Barbara County in January.
We are reactivating the Alameda County Disaster Relief Fund to enable Alameda County employees and people in the community to make voluntary cash and/or online donations to benefit the victims of these tragedies. County employees may also have the option to donate up to 5 days of their accrued vacation time, compensatory time and/or holiday in-lieu time.
The Board of Supervisors established the Alameda County Disaster Relief Fund in response to the September 11, 2001, attacks in the United States. The Fund has been reactivated numerous times in response to tragedies including Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the Northern Japan Earthquake/Tsunami in 2011, mass shootings in San Bernardino and Orlando, and the fatal Ghost Ship warehouse fire in Oakland’s Fruitvale neighborhood on December 2, 2016.
Alameda County intends for all current contributions to the Disaster Relief Fund to go directly to victims of the recent wildfires and mudslides.
Thank you for your leadership, generosity and support.
Cash donations may be contributed by sending a personal check payable to the Alameda County Disaster Relief Fund c/o the Auditor-Controller Agency.
