Words can not describe the grief and sadness many of us are feeling for our friends and family in our community that have been affected by the Camp Fire. I’ve seen the videos and pictures and feel an overwhelming hopelessness and only have one desire, to help. In saying that, Yuba College is partnering with 4G Foundation, to not only collect items to give to the shelters, but to help organize volunteers and donate money.
If you are interested in donating items, the following is needed:
Non-perishable foods, canned food, snacks like granola bars and soft foods for the elderly, toiletries, baby diapers, adult diapers, toilet paper, feminine hygiene products, paper plates, and phone chargers, new towels, bedding, blankets and pillows, batteries, water bottles, and first aid items.Many of the evacuees are elderly, please keep that in mind when donating. Please take all of your donations to Yuba College Marketing (2088 North Beale Road, Bldg 100A, Room 21) from Tuesday, November 13 – Thursday, November 15.
If you would like to volunteer to help feed the evacuees, contact Chanta Apodaca at (530) 329-1148.
They are feeding evacuees today in Gridley, tomorrow in Oroville and Chanta can provide a list of future locations.
If you would like to donate $ online, use the below link, or provide check/cash to Marketing.
The shelters believe they have enough food and supplies for only one week, so I will be accepting donations through next Thursday, for 4G to pick up next Friday. If I have an overwhelming donation response, I will ask them to pick up and deliver to the shelters sooner.
