Operation: Humble Trooper Spins Up

Following a stint as a freelance reporter, she served as a public relations professional in the nonprofit sector working to enhance community service through storytelling and online engagement.

A wildfire in the town of Pateros, WA burned more than 300,000 acres and destroyed over 150 homes in Okanogan County.

We launched Operation: Humble Trooper and are deploying a team to manage debris removal, damage assessments, spontaneous volunteers, and on site donations on behalf of the town. We’ll also be sending strike teams out the door to assist local residents with the cleanup effort.

Currently, TR members within 350 miles of Pateros are encouraged to complete their profile and register for this operation through Roll Call. Other members and supporters can back up the team on the ground by making a financial donation or letting others know about our efforts through Facebook and Twitter.
