The Spokane Tribe was hit especially hard by the Cayuse Mountain Fire, so a local advertising firm, BHW1 Advertising, stepped up to help.
Jamie SiJohn, a BHW1 employee, is a member of the Spokane Tribe and says 13 families lost everything they had in the fire. SiJohn grew up in Wellpinit and knew she had to do something to help the people she calls family.
“It's heartbreaking. This is the second summer that Spokane reservation has been had to deal with wildfires. And to see people have to pack up under Level 3 evacuation or Level 2 evacuation its heartbreaking," she said.
SiJohn says some of the donations will go to tribal firefighters who were some of the first crews to work the fire.
