GoFundMe to benefit Tamarack Fire evacuees

Lots of people are wondering how to best provide assistance and support to our neighbors in Alpine County. In response to these inquiries, the Alpine County Chamber of Commerce established a funding campaign to help those evacuated as a result of the Tamarack Fire.

The GoFundMe page set up this past Sunday says all donations will be taken through Alpine County’s Chamber of Commerce and “distributed as needs arise, to the evacuation center, small business assistance fund, and/or Alpine County to assist with rebuilding efforts.”

As of this writing, the fundraising goal is set at $10,000. To make a donation, visit and search for the “Tamarack Fire Assistance Fund” page organized by the Alpine County Chamber.
