The devastating wildfires burning here in California over the past two weeks have been especially difficult for the families who are mourning loved ones lost in the blaze, and the thousands more who have lost their homes.
The losses so many are suffering across the state are especially close to our heart. While our immediate family was not directly affected, we are close to family and friends who were. Our sister’s in-laws lost their home in Southern California. As well as a cousin, some friends, and the parents of one of our AccuGlide factory team members who all lost their homes in the Northern California fire.
We want to help. This Friday, November 23, we will be donating all profit from sales made on that date of AccuGlide Saws, Tracks, Blades and Attachments, to the California Community Foundations Wildfire Relief Fund. Orders placed on Friday will include a donation amount on the Invoice that will be donated to the fund at the end of the day.
If you would like to donate directly, here is a link with information on how these funds will be used: https://www.calfund.org/wildfire-relief-fund/
A few we’ve talked to who lost their homes have said they were brought to tears by the kindness, love and generosity they’ve been shown these past few weeks. They have also made expressions of gratitude to the brave firefighters and first responders who worked to protect their community. It’s heartwarming to know that when natural disasters strike, there are friends, family and even strangers who lovingly support us and encourage us to keep going!
