      Birdie December 15   You are addressing a need that I find admirable. That will help a lot of hurting folks. The recovery is going to be such a long process. The clean up has to be monumental. I wish you much luck in your endeavors. I am working with Hurricane Harvey s...  more

      Myo (The EASY One) December 15 Ken and Margaret Kleinschmidt: I always question funding and solicitations and, like you, I’m always skeptical unless I know the person asking. I understand your concern. The question is legitimate butperhaps too blunt.

        Stacie Albright December 15 It would have been easy to find out if I am on the up and up.  I already have an RV, a 1967 Airstream and 2 1954 canned ham vintage trailers.  I really don't need anymore LOL!!

        Dot n Bill Gillespie December 15 So when Stacie Albright first posted, there was a reply that was a bit rude. I think it may have been removed...but like she said, you can check me out... so I did just that and here is a response. I think this speaks pretty highly of her!

      Stacie Albright December 15 Well, now that we are passed all that I have one potential taker so far that may donate an RV.  I did, however, just find out from someone who has more experience with doing this than I do (she did this after the Butte Fire in 2015 that I was also in...  more

        LarandSus December 15 I'm sure it's similar to a car donation which we've done. There was a relationship between value and age of the vehicle with a certain maximum for older vehicles.

      Stacie Albright December 16 Well if somebody would like to help up here in northern CA that sure would be great.  I am also a member of FMCA and posted there as well.  Thanks in advance if somebody can help.  I have a list of people/families that need somewhere to cal...  more

      Stacie Albright December 14 Donating to the Red Cross is throwing money away.  I have worked beside them on 2 separate evac centers and they are sort of useless, better off with homegrown causes and donating the Yuba/Sutter Habitat For Humanity as they are matching funds up to ...  more

      Curtis November 18 Thank you for posting this here Donna. This is exactly what this group is for, and folks can help if they feel so inclined. Such a tragedy. Paradise, CA has a HUGE retiree population. I fear the worst for the over 1300 missing.
