Bulk Distribution

Red Cross volunteers are handing out cleaning, hygiene and comfort items in hardest-hit neighborhoods devastated by the Butte fire. These items include water, snacks, non-perishable meals, and clean-up items such as gloves, buckets, trash bags and dust masks  and debris sifters.

Shelters

The shelters are providing for the immediate needs to those affected, including a safe place to stay, food (dinner, snacks), water, medicines and health services, cleaning supplies, emotional support and other support resources. Impacted residents are welcome to stop by during the day even if they choose to spend the night elsewhere. The shelters will remain open as long as there is a need.

Resource Centers

Local resource centers are places where representatives of various local agencies will be available to assist impacted residents with information, basic needs, and referrals to programs and services. In additional, the Red Cross Client Assistance Center gives affected families the opportunity to meet one-on-one with trained Red Cross caseworkers who will assess their disaster-caused needs and provide information to help individuals move toward recovery.
