Fortunately, if properly insured, these people should be getting money right away from their insurance companies to buy clothing and other essentials and help cover expenses until they can rebuild.  It's a long painful process.

Many of the wineries have sent out enails saying to please keep buying their wines as it has been such an economic hit! If it is safe we plan to go there next month. I have a friend who lives there so I may take some things to donate.

Donate money to churches in the local area. They tend to comprise the majority of help and work for free, ensuring the money goes to the people needing help and not to administrators.

I'm not from California, but we are praying and broken-hearted for all those who have lost lives and personal belongings and homes.  Sounds like a very generous plan for the friendly realtors in the area.

NAR has a fund just for that. I am sure the local associations are reaching out to the membership to see that they are included. Maybe California Realtors also have a relief fund. That would be the next place to check. There are many places to give and the Red Cross is always a good place to start.
