Our thoughts are with everyone who has been impacted by the tragic fires. Here are a few ways to help, as of 11/13/18:
- Donations of new clothing, undergarments, shoes and socks can be taken to the Oroville Municipal Auditorium at 1200 Myers Street, Oroville, 95965. Evacuees also need paper products, visa gift cards, new pillows, blankets, towels, and washcloths.
- The Hope Center Food Bank in Oroville is still taking donations at its warehouse at 2850 Feather River Boulevard in Oroville but it will no longer accept anything at its Kitrick Avenue A location. The Hope Center has asked for backpacks, new undergarments, non-perishable foods, paper products and bedding items.
- The North Valley Community Foundation has two funds: The Camp Fire Evacuation Relief Fund and the Butte County Schools Fire Relief Fund. Donors can make an open gift to the school fund, or designate a specific use, like textbooks or school supplies.
- Monetary donations may also be made to the American Red Cross via their website or phone at 1-800-733-2767. Alternatively, you can text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
- The United Way of Northern California is taking donations for its NorCal Fire Relief Fund through its website and by text: send the message BUTTEFIRE to 91999.
