Arizona Monument Wildfire - the Sierra Vista community requests help

See also

Over the past few weeks amazing things have been happening on Facebook. Between the Wallow Wildfire Facebook pages and recently the Monument Fire pages - an enormous community of people have appeared out of community tragedy. The humanity and kindness shown to one another, and the generosity between neighbors, communities, and friends is extraordinary.

Sierra Vista is still a place where a growing number of people and animals have been displaced. Yesterday was a bad day for fire crews and 1,700 residents were evacuated. Every single community can give Sierra Vista a hand as they anxiously support each other.

Do you know of any high school students in Gilbert (or nearby) who are in need of community service hours? Below is a list of organizations that would be eternally grateful for the extra hands. No experience required. Sierra Vista is 175 miles south east of Gilbert.
