SANTA CLARA – With wildfires ravaging much of the state, the 49ers are doing a small part to help those affected.
We previously wrote that ahead of the team’s matchup with the visiting New York Giants Monday Night the 49ers provided tickets and buses to the Paradise High School football team to attend the game. That was according to KRCR news.
Last week, the team had to forfeit its playoff game due to the Camp Fire raging near Chico, California. 49ers strength and conditioning coach Shane Wallen, who grew up in Paradise, has started a GoFundMe page to raise money for relief.
Before the game the team met with 49ers General Manager John Lynch and got to go on the field during the singing of the national anthem.
“I’m sorry for what you guys are going through, but I’m glad you could be here today,” Lynch told the team. “But hopefully being here tonight can make it a little better.”
You can help the Paradise football team by donating to the GoFundMe that coach Shane Wallen set up here.
