Another $900,000 of Thomas Fire and 1/9 Debris Flow donations are earmarked for long-term recovery and rebuilding efforts of low-income families, United Way of Santa Barbara announced. Of that amount, $300,000 will be distributed by six nonprofit agencies, including the Family Service Agency, Future Leaders of America, and Salvation Army. United Way is also offering $600,000 in cash grants to eligible residents impacted by the recent disasters, focusing on those who lost family members, those with property losses, and those who lost work. The application window closes on May 11. Visit unitedwaysb.org for more information.
Editor’s Note: The amounts to be distributed were corrected on April 25. The original story had omitted the $600,000 going to eligible residents.
