Over 8,800 structures have been destroyed, including 7,600 single family homes, evacuating 52,000 with over 13,000 people in shelters. Many families are sheltered in structures while many are staying in tents in the Walmart parking lot.
The money raised on this GoFundMe will be distributed to nonprofit organizations across the country that are offering general relief to government workers, including but not limited to, food, counseling, and housing support.
