Raiders, 49ers team up to help Clayton Fire recovery efforts

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers have both teamed up to help the recovery efforts for the Clayton Fire in Lake County.

Oakland and San Francisco will each donate $10,000 to the Konocti Unified School District.

The district was scheduled to start classes on Monday but had to cancel due to the fire.

“The Raiders express our care and concern for those affected by the Clayton Fire,” said Raiders President Marc Badain. “We salute all of those who are assisting in the recovery efforts that are already underway.”

“Our hearts go out to the people of Lake County and everyone involved in the relief efforts as they courageously fight through the terrible tragedy that is affecting their homes and their way of life,” said 49ers President Al Guido. “We are happy to come together to help them along the path to recovery.”

The fire is 80 percent contained as of Saturday morning.
