Fire survivors who lost homes in the devastating Lake County fires and residents struggling with local childcare will benefit from a generous donation of $80,000 from Fire Family Foundation (FFF). A donation of $60,000 was made recently at the Middletown Fire Station to Hope City, a disaster relief agency rebuilding homes destroyed by the fires, and a donation of over $20,000 went to the Lake Family Resource Center (LFRC) for much-needed childcare in the community.
Fire Family Foundation provides assistance to individuals and families affected by fire-related disasters throughout California and is the charitable hand of Firefighters First Credit Union. FFF worked with the North Bay’s Redwood Credit Union (RCU) and Mendo Lake Credit Union (MLCU), along with the California Credit Union League (CCUL) to identify the greatest needs of fire survivors and provide the funding. Foundation executive director Robin McCarthy along with credit union and league representatives presented the checks to Hope City chief executive officer Kevin Cox and Team Lake County chair Shelly Mascari this month.
