The current fires in Sonoma and Napa counties have already destroyed more than 1,500 buildings, and are still uncontained. Many Local 38 members live in the North Bay, and many may have lost homes, belongings, and more in tragic fires that some are describing as "worse than the Oakland Hills fires.".
Local 38 has established a gofundme site for the benefit of Local 38 members and families who are victims of the fires..
In the days and weeks to come, they will need all the support they can get. We are asking members and friends to help their Local 38 brothers and sisters by contributing what they can to the Local 38 fire relief effort. All proceeds will be distributed to Local 38 members and families who are victims of the fires.

Just a personal note to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has stepped up to support our union brothers and sisters who are victims of the Northern California wildfires. I have heard heartbreaking stories from members who have lost everything except what they had on their backs. Your support provides a ray of hope. I also want to say thanks to the thousands of emergency responders who have spent the last week saving lives, homes, busineses and more. Your courage, dedication and generosity of spirit is an inspiration to all of us!!!
