“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:

  • $10,000 Magalia Community Church
  • $10,000 Paradise Alliance Church
  • $10,000 Meals on Wheels

  • $10,000 First Baptist Church of Magalia
  • $10,000 First Baptist Church of Paradise
