Thank you Siskiyou County community for your overwhelming generous support for families affected by the Boles County Fire. What follows is a brief update on what has happened at Hope, and what the continuing plan will be to manage donations.

• Since Tuesday September 16th, 128 fire-effected families have visited the church and received clothing, bedding, household goods, food, hygiene products, warm hugs and caring conversations.

• Since Monday Sept 22nd, Siskiyou County residents have come to purchase clothing donations that are in excess of the needs of fire-survivors. As of Thursday morning, Sept 25th, over $10,000 in cash donations have been raised.

• Over the last week, 7 truck and trailer loads of donations have been shared with the Weed Distribution Center. Another 2 box trucks have been delivered to the Crystal Geyser storage warehouse, and an estimated 7 additional box trucks will be delivered there before the week’s end.

• Each year, Hope Community Church hosts a free community clothing give-away. In keeping with that tradition, after the clothing sale concludes, all remaining, sorted clothing will be offered for free for a limited time to the community. Clothing giveaway hours will be Friday Sept 26th, 12pm-6pm and Saturday Sept 27th, 8am-1pm.

• All new commodity donations (food, hygiene items, diapers, pet food) have been re-distributed to local organizations that are equipped to continue their distribution.

• As of 1pm Saturday September 27th, Hope Community Church relief center will be closed, and all remaining donations sent to the official donation center at Crystal Geyser warehouse.
