CHICO, Calif. – 1000’s of residents who misplaced their properties or their family members in a Northern California wildfire will spend Thanksgiving in sudden conditions and with unfamiliar faces.
The nonprofit World Central Kitchen is teaming up with companies close to the city of Paradise to supply 15,000 meals Thursday. And scores of individuals are opening their properties to share dinner with strangers who misplaced every part.
Others who fled the lethal wildfire are spending the vacation with household close by.
The fireplace ignited Nov. eight and devastated Paradise and surrounding communities. It has killed no less than 83 individuals and destroyed greater than 13,000 properties. 1000’s of individuals stay evacuated.
Paradise Mayor Jody Jones says the group meals will likely be “a respite from the frantic exercise of attempting to place our lives again collectively and our city again collectively.”
