We have the results of the money raised for the 23ABC Day of Giving event. The fundraiser was held by 23ABC and ABC stations all across the West Coast.

The Day of Giving was created to help the American Red Cross and all wildfire evacuees. More than $545,000 was raised all of this to help people who've been displaced by wildfires.

Right now firefighters continue to battle fires in California, Oregon, and Washington that have burned millions of acres of land.

Kern County firefighters have been sent to battle several California wildfires including the Creek, Sequoia Complex, and Baker fires.

If your family has been affected you can call Red Cross directly at 1-800-RED-CROSS and they will get you to the closest site for assistance.
