WEED, CA - Boles Fire Recovery
The town of Weed, CA is located in the Cal-Nevada Conference. In October 2014, a fire was intentionally set and the arsonist has since been sentenced to jail time. Right now, long-term fire recovery efforts are short of volunteers. They welcome volunteers from everywhere!
Adult teams are needed to help in the rebuild of houses.
Tools are available for teams and mostly supplied by the Santa Rosa UMC Recovery Trailer.
The UMC in Mt. Shasta can provide accommodations for your team with space to sleep and a kitchen. Showers will be arranged offsite at a nearby fitness club. In addition, the HiLo Motel offers discounted rates to volunteers and RV parking is also available at a discount. There is also a group house which can be rented out to teams.The Weed Long Term Recovery Group Volunteer Coordinator Brenda Duchi at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 530.408.0023.
