BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Ten months after the Camp Fire and survivors are still in need of resources from centers like those in Yankee Hill-Concow and Magalia.

In December, the Yankee Hill-Concow hardware donation center opened a month after the fire and now holds basic necessities like food water, diapers, clothes and shampoo.

Nicole Newman, who runs the donation center, said they help up to 80 survivors per day.

"Now it's starting to get cold so they're starting to need shelter for the stuff that they do have, like sheds, yorks, coolers, gas, propane and generators," said Nicole Newman, who runs the center in Concow.

At the Magalia Community Church donation center, Michelle Morley, the office manager for the church, said they are currently in need of food.

"The biggest thing is people are foregoing buying food so they could have gas to go down to Chico or Oroville for doctors appointments or case manager," said Morley. "Everything is down the hill so they need the gas to go down the hill so they're not buying food."

The Magalia center has been receiving a lot of snack food but they are looking for donations of canned foods, proteins, rice, flour and pasta.
