Some of our MVCAC members have lost their homes during the Camp Fire. The good news is, Matt Ball, Manager of Butte County MVCD, Chris Ocegueda, Vector Ecologist/Fish Biologist at Butte County MVCD, and their families are safe in temporary housing and their immediate needs have been met. The bad news is, their homes are total losses.
We want to help Matt, Chris, and any of our other members in any way we can – whether it be through donations of gift cards (cash gift cards (Visa, AMEX, MC types), Bel Air, Raleys, Safeway, Costco, or Amazon, Kohl’s, Walmart, Target etc), OR cash/credit card donations can be sent directly to MVCAC who will then disperse them to the members directly. Notes of encouragement will also be relayed.
At this time, we are monitoring to see if we have other members who are affected by this tragedy (along with the Southern California fires) and do ask you to let us know if you are aware of others.
If you would like to mail in your donations or notes of encouragement please send to:
