It turns out there can be too much of a good thing. According to the official Carlton Complex Fire blog, the community has overwhelmed community groups with their donations.
Effective immediately, physical donations of clothing, books, toys and more will no longer be accepted.
Okanogan County resources no longer have the space to store additional donations or the manpower to sort them. All donations currently being sorted are more than enough to cover what's needed – they are being transported to a central location and then distributed to members of the community from there.
If you would still like to offer assistance to victims of the Carlton Complex fire, please consider a cash donation to the Apple Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross or other local charities. You can also donate cash for fire victims at any North Cascades Bank.
