How to help the victims of the Butte County Fires

Our hearts are with all of our friends and family impacted by the devastating Camp Fire currently burning in Butte County, CA. At times such as these people frequently ask how they can help and we have come up with three ways that people can support our community:

1.) Our NorCal Scout Shop in Chico located at

3881 Benatar Way Ste. D, Chico, CA 95928, will be accepting the following items to be dispersed to local shelters:


Non-perishable food items

Pet Foods

New, unopened toys

Clean, unused blankets

If you are going to make a drop off, please coordinate with Josh Ramsey at 530.515.8250 or

2.) We have 6 Scouting units with over 50 Scouting families in the affected area that have lost all of their Scouting equipment (Flags, Sleeping Bags, Tents, Cooking Gear, etc). We have set up a Go Fund Me Account to raise funds to help replace their gear. To donate to this fund please visit:

3.) With the devastation that comes with a natural disaster there is always a general relief fund to help ease the suffering of the many victims. If you wish to help the general relief effort please consider a donation to the American Red Cross at:

The Boy Scouts of America will also be coordinating volunteer shifts at the local shelters to help with general tasks, supply distribution, and activities for shelter youth. To volunteer for these efforts please contact Alyssa Coute at

If there is anything else that our local Scouts can do please send your ideas to
