Letter: Wildfire victims

Wildfires in Idaho have taken a toll on private property this summer (Aug. 23 articles in the Idaho Statesman). In Ada and Canyon counties, we have — so far — only dealt with the smoky air caused from the fires, but many of our fellow Idahoans, in other counties of our Gem State, are suffering from destruction of all their belongings. Let’s join together in giving them a message of caring and hope from us. Please contribute what you can to American Red Cross-Idaho Disaster Relief. Visit redcross.org/idaho or call 1-800-853-2570 or mail your contribution to American Red Cross, 5371 W. Franklin Road, Boise, ID 83705. Thank you. I’m going to make a pledge right now.
