Supplying Aid to Victims of Emergency (SAVE)
TO DONATE TOWARDS THE SAVE PROGRAM, CLICK HERE.
The California Fire Foundation’s Supplying Aid to Victims of Emergency (SAVE) program brings immediate, short-term relief to victims of fire and other natural disasters throughout California. Currently the Menlo Park Fire Protection District (Serving, East Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Atherton and some some unincorporated areas of San Mateo County) are enrolled in the SAVE Program.
Through this program, frontline firefighters in California provide SAVE gift cards to eligible victims of fire and natural disasters so they may purchase basic necessities such as food, clothing or medicine. When the program launched in 2014, the gift cards were $100 in value – and in 2019, due to the commitment of the Foundation’s donors, SAVE cards were permanently increased to $250 each.
