The City of Sierra Vista website has the latest information on donation and volunteering efforts (also posted below) to assist with the Monument Fire. It includes a complete list of volunteers, services being offered, and contact information for participating agencies.

Due to the overwhelming generosity of the community, the shelter at Apache Middle School has limited space to store donations. A list of specific supplies that are currently lacking is available on the City’s website. The Red Cross has requested that gift cards in $5 denominations or monetary donations be given in lieu of bulky supplies requiring storage.


Other donation efforts include:


Call (520) 458-3315 for information on how to provide support or information
