Once six-year-old Logan Pike had his trailer packed with supplies for those who had been evacuated due to the Mendocino fire, he and his family traveled there Sunday to deliver to some very appreciative people. Logan's friend and fellow racer Kylie Peacock and her family from Chico also helped distribute items.
Logan's family received information that families were camped out in Redbud and Austin Park in Clearlake with no shelter structure in place. Upon their arrival they found families in tents at RedBud Park with little supplies. They were in need of everything Logan had. At Austin Park the Moose Lodge is manning a small disaster relief trailer handing supplies out to those in need. Austin Park had several families as well.
Logan had water, tooth paste, tooth brushes, soap, cases of diapers, wipes, hand sanitizers, deodorant, shampoo, brand new towels, pillows, blankets, several new packages of socks and underwear and little toys for kids, such as bubbles, Hot Wheels, crayons and coloring books to hand out.
The Pike and Duran families were able to leave what they had left of their donations with the Moose members to hand out, and stated they were very appreciative as so many people are still needing items. Monetary donations that Logan received were used to purchase blankets and pillows which were greatly appreciated as many people were without them.
Logan's Grandma Shannon Duran said it was a great experience for Logan and all involved.
"If people want to donate, I suggest they deliver to the parks in Clearlake or contact the Moose and other service organizations in the area. We also saw an organization that was bbqing near the Walmart Parking lot helping feed people."
