Association Fire Relief Fund Helps Employees Impacted by Current Fires

In October, following the devastating wildfires that decimated numerous Northern California communities and destroyed the homes of more than 300 hospital employees, CHA and the Regional Associations established the Hospital Workers’ Fire Relief Fund. As new fires now threaten tens of thousands in the Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and Ventura County areas, we encourage additional donations from hospitals, hospital employees and other organizations to support the hospital employees in Southern California.

To date, the fund has collected more than $200,000 through the California Health Foundation & Trust (CHFT), a 501(c)(3) charitable organization (tax ID 94-1498697). One hundred percent of donations will be disbursed to hospitals that request assistance for their employees who were affected by the wildfires. 

Donations can be made online or by check — payable to “CHFT: Hospital Workers’ Fire Relief Fund” and mailed to CHFT, 1215 K Street, Suite 800, Sacramento, CA 95814. All donations are tax deductible, and donors will receive a receipt for tax purposes.
