Fire Relief Fund Announced by Southern California Builders

A special fund to raise money for the victims of the Southern California wildfires has been established by the Building Industry Association of Southern California (BIAS/SC).

The BIA/SC Relief Fund will help establish an education and assistance program for those who were hardest hit by the fires. The association will direct the majority of the funds toward supporting entities that have provided temporary shelter for fire victims and other housing programs related to the tragedy.

“Our thoughts and prayers remain with those still in danger of losing their communities, as well as with those brave firefighters who have battled so honorably to save our lives and homes,” BIA/SC President Ray Becker of Lennar Communities said on Oct. 30 in his announcement of the fund.

Donations may be sent to: BIA/SC Disaster Relief Fund, c/o Building Industry Association of Southern California, 1330 South Valley Vista Drive, Diamond Bar, CA 91765.
