CHICO, Calif. - A father and daughter from Colorado drove to Chico on Thanksgiving to help Camp Fire victims.

James Faircloth and his young daughter drove from Denver in an RV filled with items to donate to those in need, including the RV.

The father of four said after seeing what was going on in the North State, he knew he had to do something.

"We're really trying to identify a first responder, firefighter, police officer or EMT that lost their home and has a family and just needs a place to stay temporarily while they try to is up," Faircloth said. 

Faircloth set up a go-fund-me campaign last week for donations to help pay for the RV. 

A California woman is donating a second RV to a family in need.

Faircloth said he and his young daughter expect to arrive early Friday morning in Chico.
