Paradise and Chico Rebuild - CA student trip

NorCalTeens is a SF Bay Area student services group trying to help communities in need.  We are self-organized and self-funded.

Last year we helped Puerto Rico rebuild after the hurricane, this year we are helping Paradise and Chico recover from wildfires. 

The Camp Fire was the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California history. It covered more than 240 square miles, destroyed over 18,000 homes and structures, and caused 85 deaths and over $16.5 billion in damage.  More than 1,000 families are still looking for housing

We are helping with temporary housing, distribute food and water to impacted families (Paradise Hope Center), and rebuild homes (Habitat for Humanity of Butte County). Eight teens and one adult chaperone will be traveling to the area for a week in June to work directly with these organizations to help with the rebuilding and supporting efforts.

How you can help: 

• FOOD DRIVE – If you are local, we are collecting canned and non-perishable food and bottled water. Please donate any food/water by June 10th.

• DONATIONS – We welcome your donations via this GoFundMe.  Any funds collected will be donated to the agencies we are working with: Paradise Hope Center  ( and Habitat for Humanity of Butte County (
