Aid For California 

30 folks from Maine will head out by Friday morning.

The Pine Tree chapter of the Red Cross is helping to organize the mission.

Executive director Suzan Bell says the Mainers will help with case management, mass care, community outreach, and shelter work.

The Red Cross is accepting financial donations to help support the fire victims, and the shelters, in southern California.

You can make sure that the donation goes to the Californians, by writing Southern California Fires in the memo section of your check.
