HOUSTON - The Orange County Chapter of the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) has partnered with the Orange County Chapter of the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM) and the Orange County and Greater Los Angeles Chapters of the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) to accept non-monetary donations on behalf of the communities affected by the recent Southern California wildfires.

“We’ve been working diligently to establish relationships with other associations to expand our outreach and our resources,” said Orange County Chapter of IFMA President Diane Coles. “We knew that collaboration was key, because together our efforts will have a far greater impact.”

Currently being accepted are donations of non-perishable food items such as canned goods, pasta, and bottled water; grocery gift certificates; gas cards; personal items such as shampoo, soap, and diapers; and clothing.

All donations will be taken to local relief organizations such as the American Red Cross, Goodwill, Second Harvest Food Bank, and the Orange County Rescue Mission. These organizations will distribute the items to fire victims throughout the Southern California area.

Those interested in helping the Southern California fire victims can send their non-monetary donations to:

BOMA IREM IFMA (So Cal Fire Relief)
1405 Warner Avenue
Tustin, CA, 92780
