New York State has sent firefighters to help battle the massive blazes engulfing the western United States right now, but that's not the only way New Yorkers can help with relief efforts.

With fires stretching across thousands of square miles in California, Oregon and elsewhere, displacing tens of thousands of people and killing at least 33, relief organizations are seeking financial donations to provide food, shelter, medicine and other necessities to those impacted by the blazes and to first responders fighting them.

Long Islanders looking to get involved have a range of options to chose from. Here are some:

The American Red Cross

Food banks

Center for Disaster Philanthropy

California Fire Foundation
