2018 has been one of the worst wildfire seasons on record in California. Recently, foehn winds caused another round of massively destructive fires to sweep across the state. The Woolsey Fire and Camp Fire, the latter of which has thus far killed at least 56 people and destroyed more than 10,321 structures. More than 600 people are still reported as missing. This is California’s deadliest and most devastating wildfire on record.

In Southern California, the Woolsey and Hill fires are raging, with nearly 20,000 acres burned and thousands of people forced to evacuate.

Among those families who have lost homes to the fire are 17 employees from the Ray Morgan Company. Longtime partners and friends of Crexendo, Ray Morgan is headquartered out of Chico, CA. An outstanding organization with wonderful people as part of their team, it is our privilege to work with them. If you’d like to help, Ray Morgan has set up a Go Fund Me campaign to support the families affected by the wildfires, available via the below link. Any amount given is much appreciated and will go directly to the families affected by this disaster.

From the RMC Fire Relief Fund page:

“Our colleagues had already left for work or were in the office when they received word that their homes were being threatened by the Campfire. By the time they left the office and headed home, it was too late, the roads into Paradise were closed and police were not allowing anyone back into the town of Paradise.

All they have are the clothes they wore to work on Thursday, Nov 8th.

The funds raised from GoFundMe will go directly to the employees and their families, to purchase items that are needed to rebuild their lives. Things we all take for granted such as clothes, towels, wash clothes, blankets, sheets, pillows, personal hygiene items, home goods, diapers, toys, school supplies, backpacks, etc.”
