From Truckee, We Too Can Help The Northern California Fire Victims
There is no question that the recent California fires have impacted us all on some level. KJM stands united with the awareness that first and foremost we are human, connected as individuals and greater communities. In times like this we can’t help but feel the suffering of collective loss, especially when it’s so close to home.
Many of our KJM clients and friends have shared stories on their experiences in the fires and the greater impact it’s had on their lives and those they love. Stories of people opening their homes for shelter and donating everything from money to clothing are abundant. In Truckee-Tahoe, we have various organizations coordinating funding as well as upcoming events to raise funds for families who’ve been affected.
If you have been impacted by the fires and need additional help with your Truckee-Tahoe residence, please let us know and we are happy to support you and your property.

Open Your Homes to those in need
Airbnb has started an Open Homes program to provide free shelter for displaced residents and relief workers who have been deployed to help. Airbnb is asking hosts living near the affected area to open up their homes for free. The program has been expanded so residents of San Francisco, Berkeley, and Oakland can now sign up to host evacuees.
A Google docs page has also been created to help connect evacuees with people opening up their homes separate of a formal program.
pets and animals need help, too!
You can donate to local animal shelters, which are housing pets for people who were evacuated. Many shelters have a no-pets policy, which forces pet owners to find other options. Here are local shelters that can use donations:
