Raiders Donate $250,000 to Fire Relief Efforts in Butte County

The Raiders have pledged a total of $250,000 to those negatively impacted by the wildfires that have raged through Northern California.

The Raiders gave $200,000 and $50,000 in supplies to the North Valley Community Foundation and the American Red Cross to help local families in need after the Camp Fire took lives and property throughout Butte County and some surrounding areas.

Raiders owner Mark Davis went to Chico State, and has a strong connection to areas impacted by the fires in the region.

"The Paradise Camp Fire struck very close to home for me," Davis said in a statement. "While living in Chico, we would drive up to Paradise at least twice a month to eat at a restaurant owned by the Allen family called Basque Norte."

"Paradise was truly God's Country. I'm thankful to be in a position to help at this time of need. My thanks go out to all the first responders who risked their lives helping to save others. But most of all my heart goes out to all of those who lost their homes and loved ones."

Raiders players and staff helped box supplies set for delivery to Butte County this week.
