Yavapai County Emergency Manager Ashley Ahlquist said, “Yavapai County residents are generous to a fault. We have received so many calls about where and what they can donate to support their neighbors displaced by the Crooks Fire.”
This is National Volunteer Week and what better way to celebrate than to sign up to volunteer or donate. It is always best to find an organization that you know is reputable when volunteering or donating, so Yavapai County has put together this short list of local and national organizations that we know will keep your support local and do the most good.
The American Red Cross is always here during an emergency, and they can take financial support as well as volunteers. https://www.redcross.org/
The Yavapai County Food Bank is located in Prescott Valley at 8866 E Long Mesa Dr. You can drop off shelf stable food or make a donation by calling (928) 775-5255. If you have been displaced by the Crooks fire, they are available for food distribution on Tuesday and Wednesday between 3-5 PM and on Thursday and Friday between 1-3 PM.
We will provide more options as they become available.
