Apple is doing their part to help end the Southern California wildfires.

According to Billboard that the tech giant is pledging $1 million to the relief efforts. The company said in a statement:

“Our thoughts are with all those affected by the fires in Southern California, including our colleagues, friends and their families. Apple is donating $1 million to aid in the rebuilding and recovery efforts of the communities that have been impacted.”

Apple is also adding donations pages across its many online platforms, like the App Store and iTunes, so that customers can easily donate as well.

This isn’t the first time the company has done their part to help; they donated a separate $1 million back in October to fight the Northern California wildfires as well.

Outside of Apple, the company JetSuiteX is also donating a portion of their ticket sales to relief efforts as well.

So far, these fires have become the fifth largest in the history of the state and have destroyed over 680 homes.
