Community West Bank Donates $25,000 to Thomas Fire Fund, Calls for Support for Victims

Community West Bank on Wednesday pledged $25,000 to United Way of Ventura County’s Thomas Fire Fund to support those affected by the wildfires raging across Ventura County and near the Santa Barbara County line.

Together with the American Red Cross of Ventura County and the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services, United Way has set up the Thomas Fire Fund with 100 percent of the donations to support those who have been affected by the fires.

Donations can be made by texting UWVC to 41444, online by clicking here or by calling 805.485.6288. Checks may be sent to the United Way office at 702 County Square Drive, Suite 100, Ventura, CA 93003.

“We have many employees, customers and neighbors who live and work in the communities affected by the Thomas Fire,” said Martin Plourd, Community West Bank president and CEO. “Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have had their lives disrupted by this fire, and we thank the brave men and women fighting the fires. We encourage everyone to support the recovery effort in any way they can.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
