California Wildfires

CURRENT WORK – California Wildfires 

At this moment, three major wildfires are ripping through the state of California, leaving destruction and heartbreak in their wake. Our hearts break for the people of California, and we’re doing everything in our power to help. Now, more than ever, we need your help: these fires are far from being contained and this week’s forecast of strong winds and low humidity will only worsen conditions. Learn more about how you can help. 

Mercury One has always been committed to helping those in their time of need. This country is full of amazing, hardworking people, and it just breaks our hearts when disaster strikes and takes everything they’ve worked so hard for, and sometimes even their lives or the lives of their family and friends. Find updates on current disaster work we’re doing or information about disasters we’ve worked on in the past below.



Mercury One is proud to support projects all over the United States and its territories. As disaster situations continue to become more and more frequent, we have to focus where our donors’ dollars will have the most impact, which often means responding to the hardest hit areas.



We work with dozens of amazing organizations that do the work on the ground. As always, Mercury One and our partners are the first on the scene and oftentimes the last to leave. We will leave no project if it is not 100% done and done right.
