Storm Response 2023

San Bernardino County is continuing its coordinated response to the ongoing historic snowstorms affecting the County’s Mountain communities. We are working to clear roads, expediting the delivery of food and medications to the affected areas, and serving residents stranded at the bottom of the mountain.

Many victims of these storms have been trapped in their homes by the snow, uncertain when a path will be cleared to the nearest grocery store or gas station. 

While we have made great strides clearing roads and restoring essential services, residents in these mountain communities are now in need of your help to recover from the storms for weeks to come. The following is an example of donations that residents need:

  • Canned goods
  • Non-perishable foods
  • Sanitary Supplies such as toilet paper, diapers, wipes, paper towels
  • Dry goods
  • Baby formula
  • Water

There are two ways to donate:

  1. During the business hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. donors may call our hotline at (909) 387-3911, press option 2 and speak to a live representative that will coordinate your donation.

After the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., donors may click on the following link: San Bernardino County Storm Response Emergency Donations or scan the QR Code below to provide information regarding donations. A County team member will reach out to donors to coordinate next steps if the specific services or items are needed at this time. 

  1. Cash donations will be received by the Red Cross. You can help people affected by disasters like storms and countless other crises by making a gift to Red Cross Disaster Relief. Your gift enables the Red Cross to prepare for, respond to and help people recover from disasters big and small. Visit, call 800-RED-CROSS, or text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Please indicate San Bernardino County Storm Disaster Relief.

To receive donations: members of the community may go to the following distribution locations. As additional locations are established, we will be updating our hotline at (909) 387-3911:

  • Snowline School District, Wrightwood Elementary School located at 1175 Highway 2, Wrightwood, CA. 92397. This will open on Saturday (3/4/23) from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.  

The need for donations will evolve with the conditions in the mountains. If donors do not receive a response from us, the donation may not be needed at this time.

Thank you for your support. Together we stand strong.
