CHICO, Calif.- Christmas came early for many Camp Fire survivors. 

Various organizations like the Fire Angels Network, Paradise Phoenix, Veterans Resource Center, and more teamed up to host a free pop-up shop at Paradise Phoenix in Chico on Sunday. 

Fire Angels Network founder Kathleen Kettering says, "Christmas in July has been a fun event that a lot of other organizations have done and it just brings festiveness to the middle of summer when it's hot and miserable, but also because we got a giant donation of Christmas items and so it's the best way to make it festive and people can get what they need. ​"

Organizers say they hope to host community events at this location every last sunday of the month.
