Woodside Homes employees are doing what they can to help the victims of the Northern California Camp Fire. The Folsom Telegraph reports:
In the wake of the Camp Fire that devastated Paradise, Woodside Homes’ Northern California Division employees collaborated to provide aid to their neighbors to the north.
Employees collected clothing such as jackets, socks, slippers, shoes and underwear, in addition to blankets, pillows, cots, yoga mats and diapers, which was donated to evacuees prior to Thanksgiving. This division of the national home builder, which is headquartered in Utah, also provided Safeway and Visa gift cards to evacuees staying in Folsom area hotels who are partnering with the Folsom Chamber of Commerce to provide accommodations.
Toni Turnbull, marketing manager of Woodside Homes’ Northern California Division, and her son and his girlfriend drove 115 miles to Chico on Nov. 18 to deliver the goods to various collection centers and temporary shelters.
“There is something about working for a home builder that makes us feel especially compelled to assist those who have lost their homes, and their gratitude is heartwarming,” Turnbull said.
