49ers rally around coach’s plea for Camp Fire relief funds – Daily Democrat

SANTA CLARA — A stream of 49ers players rushed Friday to both request and provide relief for the Camp Fire victims in Paradise, the hometown of their assistant strength coach Shane Wallen.

“This place was home for me growing up, and until yesterday, it’s where my dad called home for the last 20 years. These people need your help,” Wallen tweeted Friday, requesting donations be sent to a GoFundMe account.

Tight end George Kittle, left tackle Joe Staley, linebacker Brock Coyle and defensive tackle Solomon Thomas are among those who hit Twitter in the fire-relief efforts. Kittle and fellow tight ends Garrett Celek and Cole Wick are among those who’ve donated to Wallen’s relief efforts, as has punter Bradley Pinion.

Funds are also being raised for Camp Fire evacuation operations through the North Valley Community Foundation, as noted by NBC Sports Bay Area’s 49ers reporter Matt Maiocco, whose mother lost her Paradise home in Thursday night’s inferno.
