Goodwin Fire Resources and Opportunities to Help

Hello PAAR Members:
As promised, the association has compiled a list of places to get the latest information on the Goodwin Fire and information about how you can help or where you can get help if you need it.  The Community Service and Outreach Committee is partnering with the staff to make sure that our members are taken care if they are displaced by the fire. Additionally, they are committed to helping meet the needs of the community as the firefighters continue to fight the Goodwin Fire. Below is a list of resources and opportunities to help. If you know of other information that could be useful during this challenging time, please reach out to the association by email at amanda@paar.org. Thank you all for your commitment to our community.
Best Wishes,
Amanda Creel
Chief Executive Officer
Prescott Area Association of REALTORS
