BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The Oroville Rescue Mission is including fire evacuees in its annual Thanksgiving Box Food Giveaway Tuesday.


On Monday they handed out food boxes filled with a complete Thanksgiving dinner to evacuees and others in need and they plan to do the same thing Tuesday.


Those in need will receive turkeys and all of the fixings for a traditional Thanksgiving meal.


Holiday foods, Walmart and even the head coach of the Sacramento Kings stepped up to donate.


“I easily have a couple hundred boxes that I can give away. Easily tomorrow. And I’m hoping to give them all away. In fact, I hope I have to build more just to. We want everyone. This is a rough thanksgiving I still want people to have a good Thanksgiving dinner,” said Stephen Terry, the executive director of the Oroville Rescue Mission.


If you missed out on the giveaway on Monday, they’ll be having another giveaway Tuesday at 930 Mangrove Ave., Chico, starting at 10 a.m.
