Disaster Relief Fund

The Board of Supervisors and County Administrator extend our sincere condolences and support to those affected by the tragic warehouse fire in Oakland’s Fruitvale neighborhood on December 2, 2016.

We are reactivating the Alameda County Disaster Relief Fund now to enable Alameda County employees and people in the community to voluntarily make cash and/or online donations to benefit the survivors and the families of the victims. County employees may also have the option to donate up to 5 days of their accrued vacation time, compensatory time and/or holiday in-lieu time.

The Alameda County Disaster Relief Fund was initially established in response to the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States. It has been reactivated for the South Asia Tsunami/Earthquake in 2004, Hurricane Katrina in 2005, earthquakes in Haiti and Chile in 2010, the Northern Japan Earthquake/Tsunami in 2011, Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines in 2013, the massive earthquake in Nepal, the shootings in San Bernardino in 2015 and Orlando in 2016.

Alameda County intends for all contributions to the Disaster Relief Fund to go directly to victims and families affected by the fire.

Thank you for your leadership, generosity and support.
