BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - A new campaign is seeking to bring a much-needed essential to Camp Fire survivors.

The campaign is called Campaign Propane: Operation Warmth. 

Volunteers gave away 52 propane tanks to those living in trailers in Yankee Hill and Concow on Sunday. 

"They're having to make a choice whether to cook hot meals, have a shower, or [have] heat," said Jocelyn Cronin, a volunteer with the campaign. "It just breaks my heart. It still isn't enough for me."

Residents living in those areas were thankful for the resources. 

"It means the world to everybody," said Nicole Newman, a resident in Concow. "Now Concow is feeling like we are actually being looked at." 

With the help of Diclari's Propane out of Petaluma, Cronin has been able to deliver 216 propane tanks to those in need.
