BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. -  The donations keep pouring in for Bear Fire survivors in Butte County.

Saturday dozens of community members come together at The Lakeside Market in Oroville, setting up tables filled with food, toiletries, clothing and many other items for fire survivors.

It's all a team effort put together by businesses like The Lakeside Market, Paradise Cleaners, E&J's Mobile Kitchen and the Magalia Community Church.

Action News now spoke with organizers who helped put this together as well as fire survivors who say they are extremely grateful for all of the support.

Sidra Swan, a fire survivor from Feather Falls says, "It makes me feel good to see that there are still good people out there and that they are willing to help."

Ben and Paul Hayer, owners of Lakeside Market say they are glad to be able to help. "Everybody knows we are here to help all the time, its getting nicer and nicer that its becoming a more bigger and postive thing. You can just see the warmth on people's faces."

Elizabeth Jernberg, owner of E&J's Mobile Kitchen who is a Camp Fire survivor from Paradise says being a fire survivor herself, she wanted to give back. "We decided to work with Paul from Lakeside and be a little closer to the victims because it's a little more personal, they want to be close to home, we are asking for donations, we keep going, making sure we get food and gas and gift cards. Paul has been nice enough to help provide food and nice enough to let us use the parking lot and team up with us."

They are only accepting new donations due to Covid-19 restrictions.

They will be set up again Sunday at The Lakeside Market from noon to 6 and again on Monday. 

If you want to donate you can donate directly to Lakeside Market or E&J's  mobile kitchen.
