Help California Fire Victims

 

The devastation caused by the Camp Fire in the Paradise, California area is indescribable! If you would like to help someone who is suffering from the California fires, trusted Adventist members will be going down with a utility trailer WITHIN THE NEXT 2-3 WEEKS when the air quality improves. They are requesting blankets, bedding, towels, kitchen items, or better yet store gift cards and/or cash for them to get things they need, etc. Please make sure everything is new or like new condition that you are sending. The items will be hand delivered personally by them. If you have friends or family down there that need help as well, please let me know their contact information so we can get some donations to them as well. Please drop-off your items at the Eagle SDA church or school (538 West State Street, Eagle) by November 30 (note the school will be closed for Thanksgiving break) or email at the address below for pickup or questions.
