As we enter into the second week of the #paradisefire, the Body Mechanix team has felt compelled to help our community and fellow Californians by putting together a donation drive to help evacuees that have already lost so much. We are asking that our members and the #BayArea community come together to give what they can from the mentioned items above🧡🖤 .
You can drop these off at any of our @bodymechanixoakland locations📍 (link in my bio). We will be pushing these items up north on Dec. 1. .
I have also included websites that people can make monetary donations. HOWEVER⚠️ DO YOUR RESEARCH when giving monetary donations as the majority of these organizations take a high percentage of what is given so, dropping off donations to the gym(s) would be most appreciated. .
