Snacks and meals are provided too.
Families get needed support in their worst hours of trouble. No home.... only a few items thrown in a car, the kids and a pet. Now what to do? The fires are out..... but their home is destroyed. Everything is needed....
The Command Center was crammed with officials and computers and fast operations with the firefighters in the field. No one had time to think about food... so it was a welcome relief to have a burrito from Bullritos put in their hands while they kept working.
We are glad to be able to help these many many heros working to save homes and businesses from the wild fires...
We have sent 2 truckloads of supplies so far... and these items are being gratefully received by families who have had to run to shelters. Fire respects no one, and young and old alike, are waiting side by side, praying and waiting to see if their homes and businesses will be spared the ravages of these fire storms.
School bags are useful for each family to receive supplies and a way to carry them. It's hard to carry more than couple of things without a bag or two. So this will help for all the items we are sending to them.
Every mom is worried about what she is going to do tonight for her baby. 'What am I going to do about formula' MAH knows this need and has sent formula to these in need.

These are guest bags with sample size items for traveling families. Combs, deodorant, shaving cream, lotion, soap and a wash cloth inside. These will be given to seniors as they are often the last to receive any supplies.
Blankets, pillows and comforters are sent to the shelters as well. At least families will have something to sleep with tonight. Soft baby blankets and child size pillows are sent also.
We hope they will get some sleep tonight.
