A group in Redding is making use out of an object that really renders no use anymore.

An art project will be made of house keys from people who lost their homes in the Carr Fire.

A similar project is being done in Chico.

The Leadership Redding class of 2018 will partner with those who suffered property loss.

The sculpture will be designed to show the resilience of survivors.

And every key will represent the unique story of a home and family in the community.

“We decided we wanted to do something to help memorialize the resilience and the strength of our community and how we came together to support the survivors of the Carr fire Fire and all the properties lost,” project coordinator Liz Crane said.

Items from the damaged home sites will also be incorporated into the sculpture.

If you'd like to have your keys incorporated into the art piece they should be placed in a sealed envelope with your name, phone number, email and the address of the property.

Keys can be dropped off at the Shasta County Arts Council at Old City Hall, the Shasta Public Library or mailed to the Shasta Builders' Exchange City of Redding.
