And as the brave firefighters work tirelessly to keep the flames at bay and from claiming any more lives, there are many ways you too can help the victims of these three fires.
Ways to help Butte County Fire victims:
To simplify the process of getting donations to those in need during the Camp Fire Butte County has designated The Hope Center at 1950 Kitrick Ave A in Oroville as a pickup location for donated items. Evacuees in need of supplies can pick up items at the Hope Center.
Donations should be dropped off at the Oroville Municipal Auditorium, 1200 Myers Street. Needed items include warm clothes, shoes, paper products (toilet paper, forks, spoons, paper plates, paper towels), and women’s undergarments.
Butte County Emergency Services is using Caring Choices in Chico to coordinate emergency volunteers, which says it has received an outpouring of volunteers. Caring Choices suggests those wanting to help donate money or supplies from the list below.
