You may also write checks to any of these organizations and drop them off at City Hall.

Gift Cards: 

Gift cards from major retailers such as Target, Orchard Supply Hardware, Home Depot, Safeway or Walmart are also encouraged. Many residents no longer have access to a kitchen, restaurant gift cards can provide families a place to eat. Many restaurants in the impacted area use OpenTable, so OpenTable Gift Cards are a great option.

Monday - Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
