Donations collected in Shasta County for Helena Fire


ANDERSON, Calif. - An Anderson woman is collecting supplies to deliver to those impacted by the Helena Fire.

After spending Friday in Weaverville, Angie Hawkins took it upon herself to set up in front of Grocery Outlet in both Redding and Anderson to gather donations.

They set up Saturday morning, and within a few hours, hundreds stopped by drop off goods.

Those planning on stopping by can drop off canned goods, personal hygiene items, pet food and more listed on her Facebook page.

"I felt compelled to try to pull off in 24 hours a food drive for the folks that have been affected in Junction City and Weaverville, and donations were coming in by 5:00 last night before I even got back from Weaverville," Hawkins said.

She said they will be out at the Anderson location until 5:00 p.m and will collect donations until noon Sunday before they drive to Weaverville to drop them off.

Hawkins said she has been impressed by the community effort, with the local Lowe's and Walmart donating water, trash bags and toilet paper.
