SOUTHERN OREGON, —A group of local police and fire agencies are teaming up for a holiday food drive. Medford Fire, Jackson County Fire Districts 3 and 5, and the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office are all coming together.
A few local real estate and mortgage companies also joined the effort.
The group is collecting non-perishable food items, along with cash donations to benefit Almeda Fire victims. Its goal is to provide a holiday dinner for around 300 to 400 families affected by the fire.
“There’s a constant need and those folks aren’t 100% yet, they are not all in homes yet, and knowing that, we want to continue to help support those families the best we can,” said Samantha Metheny, Deputy Fire Marshal for Medford Fire Dept.
