Funds come from donors
Leigh Brock, regional communications director for the American Red Cross, said all of the funds to assist fire victims come from donor dollars.
What's offered to residents who are displaced depends on the situation, Brock said.
"We take care of immediate, verified, disaster-caused needs,"
Brock said some people refuse aid when they lose their homes but are glad to have someone show up and let them know they're not alone. The Red Cross takes care of needs people didn't realize they had, like a simple toothbrush.
"After the initial event, we try to continue them on the road to recovery," Brock said.
