Medford Fire, Jackson County Fire District 3 and Jackson County Fire District 5, Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, along with Country Financial Trey Berkey Agency, John L Scott and Guild Mortgage have teamed up to serve dinner to those still affected by the Almeda fire.
They are currently seeking food donations and are holding a food drive with drop off locations in White City, two in Medford and one in Phoenix.
The deadline for food donations is December 21st.
The goal is to provide a holiday dinner for about 300-400 fire affected families, or about 2,400 people. Organizers are grateful to have already raised approximately $30,000 to help purchase pre-cooked turkeys and hams with the understanding that not all those who were displaced have ovens much less full stoves to cook with still.
They have developed a list of non-perishable items to help create the dinners and of course cash donations are always welcome. Organizers thank the amazing communities for all they have and continue to do for those who lost so much.
