FOR FAMILIES

Contact or Visit: The Alameda County Coroner’s Bureau’s Family Assistance Center at 2425 E. 12th St. or call 510-382-3000.

The Oakland Police Department said in a press release that grief counseling and resources are available to families through the center.

DONATION SITES

The Oakland A’s have set up a site for donations for Oakland Fire Victims that as of Sunday morning has raised $120, 081.

The Gray Area Foundation for the Arts has also set up a site that has raised $119,721 as of Sunday morning.

An Oakland resident has set up third site for funds. It has reached $6,242. What sets this site apart are two google docs: one a missing and safe list and another for offers of emotional and lodging support.

Do you know of other fundraisers, memorials or help efforts being planned?
