BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The Butte Strong Fund approved $140,000 to several organizations serving Camp Fire survivors to help with needs and coronavirus impacts.

“These grants from Butte Strong Fund donations will help survivors who have already been impacted by one disaster and now face another different kind of crisis," said Alexa Benson-Valavanis, president and CEO of NVCF. "We’re grateful to these partner organizations that reach so many fire survivors.”

Below is how the grant was broken down to each organization:

  • $50,000 to the Oroville Hope Center (a distribution center for the Paradise Hope Center, several churches, nonprofits and schools in the burn scar)
  • $10,000 Magalia Community Church
  • $10,000 Paradise Alliance Church
  • $10,000 Meals on Wheels
  • $10,000 Passages

  • $10,000 Community Resource Coalition
  • $10,000 First Baptist Church of Magalia
  • $10,000 First Baptist Church of Paradise
  • $10,000 First Christian Church of Paradise

“We knew they would need help distributing vital items like food, hand sanitizer, cleaning supplies or improving living conditions for many," said Benson-Valavanis.

The foundation has awarded more than $32 million for community recovery through the Butte Strong Fund, Camp Fire Relief Fund and donor-designated funds.
