Donation for Paradise TRIO ETS Camp Fire Victims


Chico TRIO Educational Talent Search students and alumni are in need of your help!  Their hometown of Paradise has been devastated with the deadliest wildfire in California history.  The Camp Fire has taken numerous precious lives, destroyed 13,696 residences, and burned over 153,336 acres.  The entire Paradise community is displaced, living with extended family, in shelters, cars, and store parking lots.  

The Chico TRIO ETS program serves 60 students at Paradise High and additional Butte County students who lived in Paradise and Magalia.  Your donation will be used to support students and their families during this difficult time and remind them that their TRIO family is here to support them!  Federal relief will eventually help, but monetary donations will help alleviate daily stress such as meals and transportation.

If you are not able to donate at this time, please keep our students and families in your prayers and share with others.

In deep appreciation,

- CSU, Chico TRIO Educational Talent Search
