The local collection of items for Paradise fire victims will wrap up Friday, and the list of items being requested has narrowed. Volunteers in the fire area say they’ve received a mountain of clothing, so that’s no longer needed. Here’s what is needed and how you can contribute.

  • Animals: Collars, leashes, cat litter, food bowls, food, towels, carriers, beds.
  • Large animals: Halters, lead ropes, hay, grains.
  • Adults/children: Women’s undergarments, baby items and toys.
  • Other Items: Paper cups/plates, paper towels, water, air mattresses, pillows, pillow cases, sheets, towels, backpacks, suitcases, duffel bags.
  • Gift Cards: Gas (Shell, Chevron, Valero), Visa (specifically to help cover vet bills), Raley’s, FoodMaxx, Walmart, Grocery Outlet, Costco, Target, Walgreens, Rite-Aid, CVS, Dollar General.

Tony Avampato, the neighbor who is gathering these items locally, says his pickup schedule is now full, so further donations, which are welcome until 3 p.m. Friday, must be dropped at his house, 7016 Colina Lane.

Looking for trailers for Paradise family

Three generations of family members who lived together lost their home in the Paradise fire.  I'm helping them find  three trailers to live in until their home is rebuilt.  They have loss of insurance funds to rent or buy. I've located one trailler that has been loaned to them by a kind and generous man who stated "Im not going to take money from someone who has lost everything." Restores my faith in humanity.  Contact me through this site or call my home at 916-354-1286 or cell 916-838-1647. Feel free to pass this message to others,
