CAWA has reached out to our members who potentially could be affected by both the Camp and Woolsey fires in northern and southern California.
To date here is what we know
Please consider donating
- Brake Parts Supply in Chico had 3 employees lose their homes. Tim Hunzeker is the owner. CAWA contributed funds to their "go fund me" account (you can donate here).
- Riebe's Auto Parts in Paradise - 12 employees may have lost their homes. Bart Riebe is the owner. CAWA contributed funds to an account being administered by the NAPA Sacramento Distribution Center to help Riebe's employees (you can donate here).
- I have suggested and provided information to both Tim and Bart to reach out to the Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation which has funds to support aftermarket associates in these catastrophic events. Also, the Collision Industry Foundation's Disaster Relief Task Force can give support to industry employees. See here.
to these two companies so they can assist their employees in this time of need. CAWA wishes all those who suffered as a result of these recent fires, the best in moving forward in their long journey toward recovery.
