Camp Fire Survivors Need Help – Here’s What You Can Do.
There are a myriad of opportunities to assist the survivors of the Camp Fire in Butte County, the nation’s largest fire in over 100 years.
1. There is al elementary school teacher who has started a drive to provide ukuleles to the children in his school and elsewhere who have lost everything. These ukuleles will not belong to the school, but to each child, so that they can keep it. He is coordinating with Music Connection of Chico, www.musicconnectionchico.com, for ukuleles, and a gig bag (padded storage), with strings and a tuner for just under $65. All you have to do is call them at 530-898-0110 and ask for the Paradise Package. They’ll do the rest. If you want to contact Tim Hull, the teacher, you can call, 530-680-5786.
2. The Northern California Conference of the United Church of Christ is working with the UCC Disaster Relief Ministries to provide aid to individuals and families affected by the Camp Fire. You can write a check to ACC and mark it UCC Fire Fund and we’ll get the check to the right folk. The Conference has already been sending funds to our UCC churches in the affected areas who are doing direct service.
