Our hearts go out to those affected by the deadly wildfires. As firefighters put their lives on the line you can help, too.

Wildfire Relief Fund

Q13 Cares, along with its partners the Seattle Seahawks, Albertsons and Safeway, collected cash donations for those affected by the Washington wildfires.

All donations went to support the relief and recovery of those affected by wildfires across our area. The funds — the Chelan Valley Relief Fund and the Okanogan Complex Relief Fund — were established by the Community Foundation of North Central Washington. 100 percent of the donations went to supporting wildfire victims, and nothing is utilized for administrative fees.

As of Sept. 3, you’ve donated nearly $200,000 to the relief fund.

Q13 FOX will continue to share the latest on how you can help using the hashtag #WAWildfireRelief.
