The City of Spokane is asking citizens to join us in a donation drive to benefit the victims and firefighters who have been affected by our region's devastating wildfires. The drive is open to everyone, and the items collected will be sent to benefit regional locations that are in need.

In times like these, it falls to all of us to step up and help our neighbors who have lost some, or all, they have. We also need to support our firefighters who are on the front lines of these ongoing disasters.

We are asking for the following items:

  • Trail Mix
  • Jerky
  • Dried and Canned Goods
  • Gum
  • Hard candies
  • Air Masks
  • Shovels and Rakes
  • Work Gloves
  • Baby Wipes
  • Shampoo and Conditioner
  • Toothbrushes and Toothpaste
  • Soap (unscented)
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Feminine Hygiene Products

Donations can be dropped off in the City Hall lobby during business hours from September 2nd to September 9th. Please be aware that we cannot accept cash donations.

This volunteer drive echoes back to April, when Spokane Gives week saw an astounding 10, 2018 volunteers give 49,721 hours of service. Let's harness that kind of giving power again to help Spokane #helpcitizens and #helpheroes! Thank you for your contributions to the drive, and for continuing to make Spokane the most compassionate city.
