TALENT, Ore. —A group of women in Talent are working to brighten up the community of Talent as it rebuilds a year after the Almeda Fire. Erin Douglas came up with the idea after she says she saw the tragedy the community has been through and wanted to help.
Douglas and her neighborhood began making what they’re calling hope flags, for people to display around town. The flags are free to neighbors in the FEMA trailers, those who lost a home, are rebuilding, or just those who want to show the community some love.
“Let’s spread a little love and joy and try to uplift the community because we know this is going to be a long haul,” said Douglas.
If you would like a flag, you can find one on the porch at Star Properties in Talent. So far 75 flags have been given out.
