September 25, 2020 (Denver, CO)- Planet Oat and Clean Trails, the organizers of National CleanUp Day, have provided a donation to The Red Cross to help combat the Western Wildfires and are continuing to find ways to provide relief and better lands across the U.S.

Clean Trails is an international 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization dedicated to keeping litter out of our trails and public spaces. In 2017 they held their inaugural National CleanUp Day, a tradition that continues every third Saturday of September. The event, which just celebrated its fourth year on the 19, has seen millions of people across North America participate since, all with the common goal of cleaning their community one piece of litter at a time. And while September 19 is officially National CleanUp Day, cleaning up our earth is an ongoing feat. For more information on how to get involved and to receive your very own free Clean Up kit, head to our website: https://www.nationalcleanupday.org/planet-oat

In partnership with Planet Oat, a presenting sponsor of National CleanUp Day, a donation has been made to help the Red Cross provide lodging, food, water and other assistance to the tens of thousands who’ve been evacuated due to the wildfire.

In California alone, over 100,000 acres have been consumed to date with only 15% of the fire contained so far. 5,000 Californians had to stay in emergency lodgings this past Sunday night as a result. In response the Red Cross had 730 disaster workers helping evacuees both on the ground and virtually.

The Red Cross is also responsible for having served over 225,500 meals and snacks throughout the state, distributing almost 20,000 relief items and providing more than 17,500 individual care contacts to help people with medical needs.

For more information on the Red Cross efforts so far, please read more here.

If you’re able to donate to the Red Cross so they can continue to help those affected, please text WILDFIRES to 90999 to make a $10 donation, or call .
