SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - The Camp Fire decimated homes and businesses in Paradise leaving thousands homeless with nothing more than the clothes on their backs.

When that happened, Angie Hawkins of Anderson sprang into action to try to help.

“I love volunteering and I love helping out,” Hawkins said. “And it's second nature to me to be able to put something on and help folks in need.”

Hawkins helped organize food and clothing drives in the past for other disasters and knew she had do what she could to help her neighbors in Butte County.

“I already knew what it was going to take after what we went through here,” she said. “But it was going to be on a much larger scale.”

Pedro GTP Relief, a non-profit that came to be in response to the Carr Fire, took what it started for the Carr Fire and extended help to victims of the Camp Fire.

“Well, for the Camp Fire, we were taking down any kind of resources for them,” said Executive Board Member Breezi Maciel. “We were a go to for them to call and check on for housing availability. We were taking lists down for people who were wanting to donate trailers.”

And support has even come from beyond the North State.

“With the Camp Fire, we got nationwide support,” Maciel said. “I've had deliveries come in from New York. I've had deliveries come in from Colorado.”

The support proves that this tragedy has touched everyone and brought neighbors closer together.

“We're one,” Hawkins said. “We're different counties, but we're one area. We're Northern California. We're here to support.”

After a windy Saturday and fairly breezy Sunday, the wind we've had is weakening as the month of February comes to a close. We can expect a mostly clear first morning of March, followed by more clouds and mild air by the afternoon.
