Local community steps in to support victims displaced by Thomas Fire

A local Ventura resident, Sara Masterson has set up a collection/donation center on the front lawn of her home. With the magnitude of donations she’s received (and still collecting) she wants to reach out to victims of the Thomas fire and let them know that they can stop by her place, anytime to pick-up any essential everyday items that they need. She is also desperately in need of volunteers to help sort the donations.

WHAT:  With the ongoing devastation by the Thomas Fire, many from the community have stepped up to help the victims displaced from their homes. Local resident, Sara Masterson, has taken action by collecting donations in her home with the help of local PODS moving and storage, who has provided a PODS container to store all of the donations.

Masterson is asking residents to donate essential everyday items that will go directly to victims to help them get back on their feet.

  • Towels
  • Washcloths
  • Bedding and sheets
  • Hygiene products
  • Essential baby items
  • Clothes: men, women and children
  • Bathroom items
  • Hair products
  • Laundry detergent 
  • Water

She is also asking for volunteers to help sort and organize the donations into designated areas for the victims to go through and pick-up what they need.

“There has been such an outpouring of support in the community and we just want to be able to help in any way we possibly can,” said Steve Yapp. “We’ve donated a PODS container to help store the incoming donations so that the volunteers can help organize and get them distributed to the families.”
