REDDING, Calif. - Volunteers in Redding are stepping up to help victims of the Camp Fire just months after the Carr Fire devastated communities in Shasta County.

Volunteers from Pedro GTP Relief, a Carr Fire-inspired nonprofit say they've been able to help about 50 people who were evacuated due to the Camp Fire.

Some of those people are staying in hotels in Redding, others are staying with family and friends.

Many left with only the clothes on their backs and are in need of clothing and other essential items.

“The people that were coming in directly were needing toiletries,” Pedro GTP Relief board member Breezi Maciel said. “They were needing the essentials toothpaste, toothbrushes, body soaps, lotions. I've had a few people mention makeup. We do not have any donations of makeup. But if you want to donate, there are people that would still like to feel pretty and feel like some normality.”

Maciel says they've also seen a need for pillows, blankets, sweaters and in-date, non-perishable food items.

Also, new socks and underwear are in very high demand.

Pedro GTP Relief is located at 1322 Butte Street in downtown Redding.

They’re open Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. if you need help or just want to help out.
