The Worst Wildfire Season
The wildfires of 2020 have been devastating and unprecedented – some of the worst wildfires in the history of our country. As of Oct. 15, 2020, there have been 45,749 wildfires that have burned 8,285,894 acres in North America this year. This is approximately 2 million more acres burned than the 10-year average. States that have been especially hit hard are Washington, Oregon, California, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Arizona, and New Mexico. Tens of thousands of First Responders from all around the country have come together and many as volunteers to battle these blazes, which still continue. Fighting these fires is a dangerous and deadly job.
As these First Responders continue to help save lives, property, and communities, all the chefs and supporters participating in ChefsGiving 2020 are raising funds to recognize First Responders’ for their incredible service.
About the Gary Sinise Foundation
The Gary Sinise Foundation was established under the philanthropic direction of actor Gary Sinise, who has been an advocate of our nation’s defenders for nearly forty years. The Gary Sinise Foundation’s mission is to serve our nation by honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need. The Foundation’s programs—designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen, and build communities—serve America’s heroes and their loved ones 365 days a year.
Donations raised through this campaign will support the Gary Sinise Foundation’s First Responders Outreach program. This program provides critical funding for emergency relief efforts, essential equipment, PPE, and training to ensure our first responders have what they need to perform to the best of their abilities. The Foundation also builds 100% mortgage-free specially adapted smart homes for first responders who have been severely wounded in the line of duty, and provides home modifications, mobility devices, and adapted vehicles to restore their mobility and independence.

About the Tiny Pine Foundation
The Tiny Pine Foundation materialized out of the great need for affordable, safe housing for those impacted and devastated by the wildfires in the Western US. CEO Alyssa Nolan-Cain, a single mom of three, saw the need first hand and knew she needed to be part of the solution. Alyssa has since successfully built over 20 Tiny Homes along with countless volunteers, secured grants and donations, and led countless wildfire relief events. The Tiny Pine Foundation has future plans to build Tiny Home Villages in multiple locations and has already extended its relief efforts to Oregon.
Currently, the Tiny Pine Foundation has first responders on the list to receive a tiny home of their own – after losing their home during the recent wildfires. Through the support of ChefsGiving 2020, The Tiny Pine Foundation will be able to broaden its reach, house additional fire survivors including Wildfire First Responders (each tiny home costs $7,000 to build), and provide Community Outreach/Training so other communities across the country can learn how to support their communities and First Responders with similar relief.
