ARIZONA WILD FIRE RELIEF

 

 

A blaze that sparked in Alpine, Arizona on May 29 has now become the largest fire in Arizona history, currently having burned an astonishing 529,000 acres. To date, over 4,000 firefighters and personnel have joined in the relief efforts, numbers unheard of in our state. Dozens of Arizona towns, including Greer, Springerville, Eagar, and Nutrioso, were evacuated in a matter of days after the fire began to rapidly grow, threatening their homes. Shelters were opened for the nearby communities in the safety of Pinetop/Lakeside,   80 miles northeast of the fire, to provide shelter and comfort for the evacuees.

 

And we were there. Providing 4 truckloads of needed supplies, water, clothing , cleaning supplies and more so far. We need the help of our supporters to help the families that have lost everything.

 

Because of the generous support of our donors:

 

We met the specific needs of each community affected by the Arizona Wild Fires.

 

We stand ready to tackle whatever happens next!!

 

 

HURRICANE IRENE

 

 

 

Hurricane Irene wound up by most estimates as one of the top ten most destructive and deadly hurricanes to hit the United States since 1980. While ultimately not as powerful as many had predicted, the storm still killed at least 27 people along its path from the Caribbean to the eastern seaboard. Transportation was shut down all along the east coast, stranding residents and tourists in shelters, airports, and train stations. More than 5.8 million customers lost electricity, thousands of flights were cancelled, flooding washed out roads and destroyed homes, and evacuation orders were issued for hundreds of thousands.

 

On Your Feet Inc, Family Resource Center responded by providing truckloads of needed supplies, water, clothing, cleaning supplies and more so far.   Thanks to the generous help of our supporters we are able to help the families that have lost everything.

 

 

Throughout its path, Irene caused widespread destruction and at least 55 deaths; monetary losses in the Caribbean were estimated to be as high as US$3.1 billion.  Early damage estimates throughout the United States range from US$10 to US$15 billion

 

 

TEXAS WILDFIRES

 

 

The 2011 Texas wildfires are an ongoing series of destructive wildfires in Texas, United States that were most intense in April, May, and September 2011. By September 12, they had burned 3,694,985 acres and about 2,630 homes (1,939 of which burned in one weekend). Statistics on the fires have been recorded since the beginning of the official Texas fire season on November 15, 2010. The fires have been particularly severe due to the ongoing 2011 Southern US drought covering the state, and exacerbating the problem is rapid desertification, the unusual convergence of strong winds, unseasonably warm temperatures, and low humidity.

 

Firefighters from more than forty-three states have been involved in the operation to combat the fires. We have provided water and other needs to the command center.

 

Our Emergency Response workers are on the ground now.  Providing truckloads of needed supplies, water, clothing, shoes and more.

 

Thanks to the generous help of our supporters we are able to help the families that have lost everything.
