OROVILLE, Calif. - A convenience store in east Oroville is proving to be a valuable resource for Bear Fire evacuees. 

The Lakeside Market on Highway 162 and Miners Ranch Road has been serving as a "meet up" for people in need and looking for aid.

At the entrance of the market, lay a pile of free clothes for evacuees.

Tiffany Keller went there to take advantage of the free clothes, she told Action News Now that she evacuated with her son from Berry Creek.

"I got a few clothes, not too many," shared Keller. "My son only has the clothes on his back."

The two safely evacuated. Keller's son was able to stay at his aunt's house but eventually had to go to a hospital in Marysville shortly after because of stress due to the evacuation order.

Keller says she did seek help with the Red Cross at the Gridley Fairgrounds, but members of the Red Cross wanted to offer her a hotel room in Roseville.

Keller says with her son in the hospital she could not leave the area of Marysville. The little money that she had went to a hotel. She also says her family is trying to help financially, but that is not enough to sustain her.

"We have no resource," said Keller. "We're waiting for FEMA, but FEMA is not coming in yet."

She says for the past few days, she has been sleeping in the back of her truck.

"Why should we have to wait so long when we know everything is destroyed," Keller said.

Keller says it's a terrible thought, but knows she will go back to Berry Creek once the situation is better.

"We love Berry Creek," Keller added. "We're going to rebuild it's going to be stronger than ever."

Lakeside Market has also been the location for several free luncheons. One popular food truck that came by the market was "E&J's Mobile Kitchen," it is based in Paradise.
