In wake of the devastating wildfires burning in California, Action News Now is taking a look at how the communities that have been affected are coming together and helping surrounding communities as well. 

While under evacuation order and displaced by the Carr fire, 12-year-old Carli Scott and her 11-year-old cousin, Jacy Dorr, wanted to do something to help others displaced by the fire. They got permission from the owner of the Peninsula Market, near their vacation home in Lake Almanore, to run a bake sale in front of the store to raise money for Carr Fire victims. Advanced Concepts agreed to match any amount that the girls collected from their bake sale.

On Thursday, August 2, they set up shop in the parking lot of peninsula Market and sold over $600 in baked goods.

After the first day, they visited Patti Roarty, owner of Patti Cakes and Janis Potter, owner of Handcrafted soap 'Just for You' and asked if they would also bake some goods for the fundraiser.

By the end of Saturday, August 4, the girls raised a total of $2,065 for Carr Fire victims. Advanced Concepts has matched that amount for a total of $4,130.

The Annie Star Quilt Guild in Chico invited members of the community to create quilts for Carr Fire victims at a "sewethon" on August 6. So far, 23 quilts have been brought in, seven were completed at Cathy's Sew & Vac and 18 pillowcases have also been completed. 

When the quilts are finished, they will give them to the Sew-ciety Quilt Guild in Redding, who's group makes quilts for charitable causes as well.

Many signs have been made by children in the areas affected by the Carr Fire thanking fire fighters for their service.
