Combined, the recent Camp, Woolsey, and Hill fires destroyed nearly 20,000 homes and structures. Last week, California’s Department of Insurance reported that preliminary claims total more than $9 billion in losses. As the long road to recovery begins, every forward step, even a small one, is important. In an effort to help earlier this month, Santa Barbara–based SeaVees, a footwear company launched in 1964, teamed up with Soles4Souls — a Nashville-based nonprofit that has handed out shoes in 127 countries since 2006 — to distribute more than 1,100 pairs of brand-new SeaVees to people displaced by those three wildfires.
