CHICO, Calif. - Many Butte County teachers, students and classrooms have been displaced because of the Camp Fire. An event held Saturday provided an opportunity for people from all over the nation and the state to provide donations for those who lost everything. Schools in Butte County resume classes on Monday.
Hooker Oak Elementary School hosted the "Color a Classroom With Love" event Saturday.
When the flyer for the event was posted online, donations started coming in from all over the globe.
A group of local teachers organized the event. Teacher Monica Brown said, "There's a message of hope and there's a message of support and we keep saying it takes a village, and we're hoping we can be that village."
"There's been lots of tears today," said teacher Amy Vaughan-Niess. "Some are overwhelmed about where do we start," she said. "So this is what we wanted to do, is give them a place to start."
The organizers say people can adopt a classroom in need for details on how to get involved. To adopt a classroom USE THIS LINK.
