BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - A charitable organization is helping Camp Fire evacuees, in the form of cash.


The Tzu Chi Foundation is a Buddhist humanitarian group that gives people some relief by giving them up to $800, while they go through a major disaster.


People who want cash aid can fill out an online application here, or text the number 530-636-0820.


The organization translates to “compassion and relief” and that’s what they hope to provide when so many are in need.


“When the fire happened the first thing we do is go to the shelters to shelter people and give out blankets. And now in the second phase, we are trying to distribute cash to the survivors,” said Minjhing Hsieh, CEO of Tzu Chi Foundation of the northwest region.


Lots of volunteers from the Bay Area came out to help during their free time.


The group is also known to have helped people during the Carr Fire in Redding.


If you need aid and wish to fill out an application, click here, or as mentioned text the number 530-636-0820 or visit the FEMA center at the old Sears Building in 1950 E. 20th St, Chico.
