Our Mission

It is with great optimism and hope that the Santiam Canyon Wildfire Relief Fund was established on September 11, 2020.

Our mission is to support residents living in the Santiam Canyon who are affected by Lionshead and Beachie Creek wildfires by raising funds to provide relief, support the recovery and clean up, and assist in the rebuild of our communities including Idanha, Breitenbush, Detroit, Niagara, Gates, Mill City, Lyons, and Mehama, Oregon.

How do I donate?

You can donate online here or mail your monetary donation to:

Santiam Canyon Wildfire Relief Fund
c/o Santiam SIT of Santiam Hospital

Stayton, OR 97383

What Can I Donate?

If you would like to continue to support the wildfire relief effort, Santiam Service Integration is accepting gift card donations (gas cards, Grocery Cards, box-store cards). The cards are given to displaced survivors of the wildfire who are actively participating in disaster case management with the Santiam SIT. In addition, the Santiam Service Integration (SIT) wildfire relief staff are continuing to work with Santiam Canyon households that were displaced by the wildfire. As households need immediate need items or household items when they move back to their properties, SIT will be posting those needs on their Facebook page. For more information about the services that SIT provides please visit our website or

The 2020 Santiam Canyon Wildfires

These two women are inspiring! They’ve both lost homes due to wildfire but in all of the chaos, they’ve helped create the Santiam Canyon Wildfire Relief Fund and are working with Santiam Hospital, Stayton, Oregon to do it.

The idea: People living in Santiam Canyon helping others living in the same community. The goal is to connect families in need, to people who can give, with a team at Santiam Hospital serving as a go-between. The beauty of it? The hospital already has a team dedicated to helping fill needs in the community. Now that team will help people in the canyon rebuild.
