Gordo Burrito Camp Fire Support

$23,730 of $150,000 goal

Created November 17, 2018
The Camp Fire, California's deadliest wildfire, rages on.  So far, 52,000 people have been evacuated, 11,000 homes burned, 71 confirmed dead, and over a thousand still missing. 
Jose Uriarte's taco and burrito shop, Gordo Burrito in Chico, CA, is just outside the wildfire's range.  Every day, Jose, who immigrated from Guamuchil, Sinaloa, gives free food to the firefighters, EMTs, police and social workers working tirelessly to serve their fire-ravaged community.


 Sunday, he closed up the storefront, gathered up a crew, and drove his taco truck out to the Elk's Lodge wildfire evacuation camp.  The scene that greeted him was apocalyptic.

In a phone interview, Jose could not find words to describe the scope of the devastation.  "It's so...big," he said, before going on to describe how the dense smoke blocked out the sun and made everything "cold and surreal."

When he arrived at the Elk's Lodge refuge, Jose was met by hundreds of shell-shocked evacuees, families who had lost everything: their homes, jobs, all their possessions.
 
So he got to work, giving out tacos, burritos, and tamales to over 300 people. Latinlive learned about the story of Jose Uriarte and decided to help him out by creating the GOFUNDME page for him.
