MAGALIA, Calif. - An artistic family from Auburn drove all the way to the ridge Saturday to give out urns as gifts to Camp Fire survivors. 

It's all part of "Project Remember Me," the family gives out urns for free for anybody whose family member passed away in the Camp Fire or lost their urns when the fire-ravaged through.

The family brought 80 urns on Saturday and delivered them to families in Magalia and Paradise Saturday morning.

Action News Now spoke to the woman in charge of the project.

"I've had really amazing correspondence with them, messages back and forth from the beginning. So I feel like I know everybody so I will look at an urn and I will know the person whose going into that urn," said Kathy Jackson, the woman in charge of "Project Remember Me." 

"I just can't believe how many they have made and how many people have been made to feel somewhat whole again," said Christa Hawthorne, a Paradise woman who came to pick up four urns.

Those 80 urns alone cost about $4,000 to make. 

Jackson says her son makes the base of the urns with a wheel, her husband creates the lids and she crafts the urns and glazes them. 

Jackson says they are grateful to accept donations from the community, but says there is no cost for people to receive those urns.

She says she's had to take a second job to pay for all the urns made.

The message she wants the project to do is to give the deceased loved ones dignity and respect after the Camp Fire.

Jackson says they want to give more urns out in the future.
