Volunteers and Materials Needed

Residents of the Westwood area of Rancho Bernardo are in need of help with cleaning their houses, removing trash, and moving back in. Westwood, located north of Rancho Bernardo Road and West of the 15, was one of the hardest hit areas in San Diego.

A coordinated effort to assist Westwood residents is being put together. While the city, state and federal agencies coordinate a separate effort for those whose homes were destroyed or damaged by the fire, this effort will be directed to Westwood residents needing significant clean up support before moving back into their homes.

San Diegans are asked to donate the following items:

Cleaning Supplies: Basic household cleaning supplies will be distributed to Westwood residents.
Trash Bags: Residents will require trash bags. Private trash hauling companies are being asked to donate trash removal throughout the afternoon and all-day Friday, October 26.
Air Purifiers: Residents need air purification systems and devices.

In addition, volunteers are needed to help individual residents clean their houses.

Anyone wishing to volunteer or donate materials for this massive cleanup effort can contact 858-503-0111 or can go directly to the on-site cleanup staging area at the Maranatha Chapel at 10752 Coastwood Road (cross street of Rancho Bernardo Road and Camino San Bernardo.)

Unfortunately, they are full of volunteers, does anyone know where else may need help with clean up efforts?
