More than 400 Oakmonters, whose community was mostly spared by October’s wildfires, contributed $113,470 to the Redwood Credit Union Community Fund, helping fire victims and first responders.

Pat Amedeo, who organized Oakmont’s fund drive, told a group outside the Berger Center on Dec. 6 that she had “hoped to do something terrific,” starting with a Nov.10 public meeting honoring first responders and veterans. The audience that day donated $30,000.

“For a month, Oakmonters streamed into the OVA office to donate,“ Amedeo said.

There were 419 donors, giving an average of $270, said Bob Chapman, treasurer of the Oakmont Community Foundation, which organized the drive.

Susan Millar, the foundation president, handed a large check to Meg Cadiz, assistant vice president of the credit union.
