Led by Band of Brothers NW, Local Non-Profit Organization to Provide Funds to Hundreds of Families Affected by Massive Carlton Complex Fire
WHAT: To aid those stricken by the Carlton Complex Fire in Eastern Washington, local non-profit Band of Brothers NW is banding together with the Northwest community to provide aid to the more than 100 hundred families in need, and they’re asking the public for help. There are three ways the public can help in this effort:
*** Go to www.bobnw.org to provide a monetary donation in any amount. Your donation to Band of Brothers NW will directly help families affected by the devastating wildfire in Eastern Washington. Your gift enables Band of Brothers NW to provide gift cards for items such as food, water, medical supplies and other necessities following the devastating effects of the wildfires.
*** Mail gift cards to the Band of Brothers NW office at 8750 122nd Avenue Kirkland, WA 98033.
*** Use your online voice to raise awareness and let others know how you’re helping through social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. using the hashtag #WeCareEWFires.

The Carlton Complex Fire, burning in the Methow Valley, has burned a combined 215,000 acres, and at this time is zero percent contained. An estimated 100 homes in towns such as Pateros, Brewster, Alta Lake and others have been destroyed, and roughly 2,000 firefighters are working in Eastern Washington communities with an additional 1,000 National Guard troops and active duty military potentially being called in to help.
