Tollhouse – The Creek Fire Recovery Collaborative (CFRC) is hosting a resource event at the Eastern Fresno County Historical Society Museum on November 6, 2021from 10am to 2pm.

This event will bring together community organizations that can share information and resources with the survivors of the Creek Fire. Organizations will have one or more tables where they will be distributing information or resources potentially useful to Creek Fire Survivors. Many of these organizations are still accepting applications for assistance so Creek Fire survivors are encouraged to attend.

Event Highlights:

  • The Tollhouse-Auberry Salvation Army Extension Unit will be holding sign ups for their Christmas Love Baskets for families in need of food this holiday season.
  • Trauma Intervention Programs-Foothill will be recruiting survivors to participate in their weekly Creek Fire Survivor to Survivor Support Group
  • Catholic Charities Diocese of Fresno will be taking intake applications for their Disaster Case Management Program
  • The Sierra Resource Conservation District will be present to meet with survivors to discuss their Fuels Reduction Volunteer workdays.
  • Representatives from Assemblyman Jim Patteron’s office will be attending to meet with survivors to learn about the struggles and challenges they are facing through their recovery journey.
  • Rebuild Our Sierra will also be taking applications for their Logs to Lumber Program and Operation Tiny Home.
  • Mountain Wear will be attending to share their donated clothing items and other home essentials.
