AGOURA HILLS, Calif. - The Los Angeles Rams teamed up with Habitat for Humanity to help wildfire victims in Agoura Hills and Camarillo nearly one year after the Woolsey Fire.
Rams quarterback Blake Bortles and defensive lineman Tanzal Smart were expected to make appearances between 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., along with Rams cheerleaders, staff, and Habitat for Humanity volunteers.
The volunteer efforts are part of the NFL's "Huddle for 100" which encourages fans to give 100 minutes of service in the spirit of the NFL's 100th season.
The collaborative effort will take place at the Seminole Springs Mobile Home Park in Agoura Hills and the Casa del Norte Mobile Home Park in Camarillo. Both communities were severely impacted by the fire.
“Community engagement and volunteerism are top priorities of the Los Angeles Rams, and we are excited to have some of our season ticket members join us as we rally together to help our neighbors in need,” said Molly Higgins, vice president of community affairs and engagement, Los Angeles Rams. “With a physical presence in both Los Angeles County and Ventura County, it was important to us to host two ‘Huddle for 100’ events to help commemorate the NFL’s 100th season and support the communities who support us.”
The Woolsey Fire sparked Nov. 8 and devastated multiple communities. The fire scorched more than 96,000 acres, along with 1,600 buildings and damaged 360 structures.
