I WANT TO ASSIST THOSE WITH AN IMMEDIATE NEED DUE TO THE FIRES:
- Consider making an additional contribution to the Bruce T. Halle Assistance Fund (BTHAF); one of the reasons for this fund is specifically to take care of our own in times of crisis, such as natural disasters.
- There are other organizations on the ground ready to help all the people in the affected areas that will also appreciate assistance, such as:
IF I HAVE BEEN IMPACTED BY THE FIRES, HOW CAN I GET HELP?
- First, if you can, reach out to your Store Manager, AVP or Regional VP to let them know your situation.

- Government support:
- For emotional support and/or legal help in these trying times, consider using the services offered by our Employee Assistance Program (EAP). The EAP is free to you and your family.
