THE CAMP FIRE IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA

The Camp Fire is the most destructive and the deadliest wild fire in California’s History. The current death toll is 76, and more than 1,000 are still missing. The fire has also burned 145,000 acres, and San Francisco which is 182 miles away had one of the worst air quality rating in the world. The fire also destroyed 11,800 structures including 9,700 homes. As a result, there are now about 52,000 people or about 24% of the population in Butte County who have been displaced.

Butte County is also home to Asian Americans. According to the U.S. Census, about 5% or 11,000 Asian Americans reside in Butte County, and Data Quest reports that 3400 are Hmong and 270 are Laotians.

The fire may have taken material possessions of some people, but no disaster can take away the American Dream to own a home and the passion of Americans to assist those in need.

AREAA’s mission is to promote sustainable homeownership opportunities in Asian American and Pacific islander (AAPI) communities. The AREAA Greater Sacramento Chapter has a goal to raise $50,000 to repair and renovate homes for Families who have lost their home from the Camp Fire. Your kind generosity is greatly appreciated. Please support.
