The San Francisco 49ers are doing what they can for their community.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the team will auction off game-worn jerseys from Monday's 27-23 loss to the New York Giants in an effort to raise money for the North Valley Community Foundation to provide assistance for victims and survivors of the Camp Fire that is devastating the area.

There were concerns regarding the air quality near Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, for the game, and Matt Lombardo of NJ Advance Media shared the EPA's report that warned those outside to "reduce prolonged or heavy exertion."

This likely wasn’t what the #NFL had in mind/hoped for coming into tonight. #Giants #49ers https://t.co/FokmHrATMO

Emanuella Grinberg and Holly Yan of CNN reported on the Camp Fire, noting Monday's developments brought the death toll from the fire to 42. The statewide death toll is 44 when Southern California's Woolsey Fire is included.

The Camp Fire has burned more than 117,000 acres of Northern California and forced more than 52,000 people to evacuate their homes.
