To receive donations, families need to show documentation that they are registered as an evacuee. You can get evacuee status at any evacuation site. You are not required to be staying at the site to receive donations.
Clothing is available for displaced fire victims at the the Municipal Auditorium. Call the Hope Center for more information and hours of operation.
Please do not drop off donations at the Oroville Church of the Nazarene campus. They will be assessing needs and sending runners to retrieve all supplies from the Hope Center. (Thank you Fathers House for taking that on!)

You can also give financially by writing Camp Fire in the memo line of your check and either drop it off at the Church or mail it to OroNaz, 2238 Monte Vista Ave, Oroville Ca. 95966. You can also give online by clicking here, mark the box: “Local Disaster Relief”, in the optional memo area type “CAMP FIRE.”
The Fathers House Campus has 6 showers available for evacuees at 2661 Elgin St.
Sunday Nov. 11th // CHANGE OF PLANS
Due to the potential fire threat to the community, increased evacuations, and severe decline in air quality, we have decided to cancel all plans for Sunday morning gatherings.
Stay prepared to leave home if an evacuation order goes into effect in your neighborhood.
We are, however, planning to meet for prayer at 6pm in the offices behind the church if you would like to come out to pray on Sunday evening.
All other planned events at OroNaz in the immediate future are canceled as we serve the evacuated community until futher notice.
Living by faith. Holding out hope. Walking in love.
