How To Help
The communities of Casa Loma and Loma Chiquita were at the center of, and were impacted the most by, the Loma Fire. The recovery effort will be long and arduous, especially for those who lost their homes and belongings.
Three organizations in the area are joining forces to help. The Casa Loma Volunteer Fire Association, the Loma Chiquita Escape Route Committee and the Loma Prieta Community Foundation will join forces to raise money to help meet community needs that will come up as a result of the fire, and to thank those involved in fighting it.
