NORTH FORK – On Monday, Mar. 18, Steve and Pam Payne of North Fork lost everything when their home on De Na Lane burned to the ground.
The community has been reaching out to help, and here are some ways that folks in the mountain community can contribute to the family in this very difficult time.Some Facebook postings on Mountain Swap from Cathie Jensen and Deborah Pennington, lay out exactly what the family needs –
“According to Jason Meyer (Camp Oakhurst Director), they are set up at Camp Oakhurst to receive donations of food, gift cards, clothes and household items.
“All items can be dropped off at the Friendship Hall at Camp Oakhurst or I can receive some donations at my home and we’ll take it up. Pam probably wears a size 10? She is petite and would likely need unmentionables and clothing.”
“These are the immediate needs of Steve & Pamela Payne:
-gift cards to: Vons, Kohls, Macys
-money put onto account at the Oakhurst & Northfork feed stores
-women’s shoes size 7, pants size 6/8, tops size m/l, cute hats & scarves, a women’s rain jacket
-men’s shoe size 10 1/2, pants size 34-36, xl tops, athletic socks (tall style), men’s rain jacket
-use of an SUV or truck style car.
“Drop locations are: Camp Oakhurst’s Friendship Hall, the Produce Place, Oakhurst Feed store, Box Feed in North Fork. Please limit phone calls and do not go directly to their temporary house at Camp Oakhurst, as that is where they try to rest after a day of chaos. THANK YOU AND BLESSINGS!”
The Little Church of the Pines is also accepting donations, and Steve at North Fork Mini Storage has offered the use of a storage unit to hold items for the Paynes.
