CHICO, Calif. - A dinner honoring "The Last to Leave" Educators and Health Care Workers took place Friday, Jan. 25, at The Palms in Chico.

About 250 Teachers and Nurses and Volunteers who helped during the Camp Fire and those who have been impacted by it enjoyed a delicious meal and a chance to gather with others displaced by the fire. There were also Paradise Town Council and Chico City Council members present, along with Butte County Supervisor Doug Teeter.

Rabina Khan, owner of The Palms and We Do Designs, gathered other community members and volunteers to make the event possible.  Other contributors include the Chico Islamic Center, Golden Valley Bank Foundation, Special Times Catering, Ali Baba, and Taj Indian Cuisine.

Paradise High School Principal Loren Lighthall spoke of the gifts and support his school has received and announced that there would be no layoff of Paradise Public Schools Teachers in the 2019-2020 school year.

Feather River Adventist Health Hospice Chaplain Richard Aldridge shared that employees would be paid through Feb. 5, whether they still had jobs or not and whether they showed up for work or not.   He also said the company would cover health care through May.

Thanks to donations raised by Khan and Golden Valley Bank (including a $10,000 donation from the Chico Islamic Center) 41 teachers and nurses who had filled out an online application for assistance, were presented with surprise checks of $750 each. In addition, The  Chico Islamic Center donated $4000 each to Paradise Elementary, Paradise Intermediate and Paradise High Schools.
