Kaiser Permanente pledges up to $1.65M to California wildfire relief

Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanente said it will donate up to $1.65 million to support relief and recovery efforts for victims of the wildfires in California.

Up to $1 million of that money will go to the American Red Cross and other organizations to help those affected by the Camp Fire in Northern California. Kaiser Permanente said the funds will support community-based and faith-based organizations helping with recovery efforts.

The health system also will donate $500,000 to the United Way of Greater Los Angeles for short-term relief and longer-term support to organizations serving low-income residents.

Additionally, Kaiser Permanente said it will donate $150,000 to Ventura County Community Foundation, a charity providing relief  — such as shelter and financial assistance — to people affected by the Woolsey and Hill fires in Southern California.
