The Holidays Came, All the Same

A Thanksgiving Feast for 400

When Thanksgiving came just two weeks after the fire started, many were facing a bleak holiday with little food.

Along with dozens of volunteers, we provided a Thanksgiving meal for over 400. The community spirit was definitely present as weary survivors enjoyed a full meal—and took a break from all they were going through.

 

 

The Christmas Spirit Alive and Well

No disaster can stop the spirit of Christmas. So, we organized a Christmas food and toy distribution for over 300 Paradise families at our warehouse in nearby Chico.

The families received plenty of food for a Christmas meal, and two to three toys for each child. There were even some bikes! The Salvation Army was delighted to provide these families with some Christmas cheer, and we're so grateful to all who donated!

 

 

The Survivor's Journey

“It’s about bringing hope to survivors at their first grieving milestone, which is Christmas. We have the opportunity to get to know them, and journey with them for the long haul, because it doesn’t stop at Christmas. It will continue on.”

- Captain Arwyn Rodriguera, Chico Corps Officer

 
A Note of Encouragement

"God is our protection and our strength. He always helps in times of trouble. Psalms 46: 1"

So read the note that accompanied a donation of blankets from a local church.
