JM Family Enterprises Donates $50,000 to American Red Cross to Aid California Wildfire Relief

Brent Burns, president and CEO of JM Family Enterprises, Inc., announced a $50,000 donation from the company to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund to help in the long process of recovery for those affected by the California wildfires.  
 
In the past few weeks, a number of wildfires have ignited across California, burning hundreds of thousands of acres and devastating the lives of many residents and families. Together, the fires are the most destructive and deadly in the state’s history.
 
“In the face of such devastation, we are grateful for the tremendous resources and support the American Red Cross provides,” Burns said. “We are keeping the people of California in our thoughts as they work toward recovering and rebuilding their lives and homes.”
 
The Red Cross is working very closely with the community to provide food, emergency relief supplies and support to those whose lives have been turned upside-down by the fires. Red Cross disaster workers are also offering health services such as replacing lost medications and eyeglasses, plus emotional and spiritual care.
