CHICO, Calif. - A Chico State class raised $25,000 for Camp Fire victims.

The agricultural leadership class started with a goal of raising $6,000 but soon beat that mark.

Students bought stuffed animals, blankets and toys for the families. 

"I know that the effect it's had on me has given me a great sense of gratitude," said Sami Guidotti, a student in the leadership class. "I'm hoping when we do deliver the presents that they appreciate the gifts we're giving." 

In addition to the stuffed animals, blankets and toys, a portion of the money went toward gift cards. 

The students will be personally presenting the items and money raised to families affected by the fire next week.

A fire weather watch has been issued from 1pm Monday to 11am Wednesday in the Valley and foothills due to dry and gusty conditions. We'll warm up next week but next weekend is looking much much cooler and wet.
