PARADISE, Calif. – The Paradise Adventist Church is giving back to the community.

Around 10 a.m. Monday people were pulling up in their cars to receive boxes full of perishable items. Some of these items include a gallon of milk, cottage cheese, celery, and sour cream.

Director of Disaster and Recovery Development, Joelle Chinnock, told Action News Now they had 1,200 boxes of food to hand out.

“For me, the whole point since the fire has been about how I can serve in the community to help heal my own trauma from the fire, and be able to work with programs like this as well as our shed program has been a tremendous source of healing for me,” shared Chinnock.

Chinnock said they saw hundreds of cars showing up at the church to get a box of food within the first hour and a half.

The church does not have a definitive date for their next food distribution but is hoping to receive more boxes to hand out by Monday, Dec. 7, or Wednesday, Dec. 9. These boxes are available to anyone in need.

Quiet, beautiful and very warm weather for California today, but a lot of changes are coming over the next week. The first of several disturbances will approach on Tuesday, and it will lead to more wind, mainly mtn showers/t'storms, and a cooldown.
