OROVILLE, Calif. - A local non-profit in Oroville is continuing to provide essential services like showers, laundry and food to those in need, while the coronavirus pandemic continues.

One of the mobile hygiene units is located on Montgomery Street and Feather River Boulevard and lately, it has been ramping up services because of the virus.

For more than a year now, Haven of Hope has been helping people in and around Oroville.

Director and Pastor Kevin Thompson said the number of people they help has doubled during the coronavirus pandemic.

"On our first day, we had 45 people and days after corona hit we've jumped to 90 and that's where we've been ever since," said Thompson. "A lot of people have lost income, the influx of money they were used to getting has gone away so we offer to fill that gap."

One service the group provides is a mobile hygiene unit. People can use them on Tuesdays and Thursdays to shower or do laundry.

Thompson said volunteers are using personal protective equipment and practicing social distancing, as best they can.

Volunteers are also providing laundry services to those who have been placed in hotels during the pandemic.

The organization recently received donations to keep operating from United Way of Northern California and the North Valley Community Foundation.
