If you’ve been in the local San Bernardino Mountain communities of Running Springs, Lake Arrowhead, Crestline or Big Bear you’ve probably heard of the Mountain Rim Fire Safe Council. This mountain-wide local non-profit organization focuses on helping residents become as “fire safe” as possible through meetings and other events where residents can get information. They are also actively involved with the county and other fire agencies throughout the mountain and some Inland Empire, state and federal agencies. These volunteers truly are remarkable and thanks to Amazon. com that organization (or business) can help the local agency and at no cost to you.
Through the program Amazon.Com will donate 0.5 percent of eligible AmazonSmile purchases whenever you shop on AmazonSmile!
The Mountain Rim Fire Safe Council is a 501(c)3 non-profit and all donations to the organization are tax deductible. While their fire safe efforts are mainly funded by grants often the grants don’t cover simple things like postage, websites and office supplies. Because the organization is 100 percent “volunteer-operated” no funds are used to pay staff.
The organization is happy to be an AmazonSmile-registered non-profit as it provides a way people can support the programs without spending additional funds.
When you’re shopping for holiday gifts please consider making your purchases through AmazonSmile and help this local mountain program. They quietly do so much for mountain residents and I know they would appreciate your support.
