Thousands of people have been displaced by the recent Northern California fires leaving families homeless with nowhere to go. Sadly, there is not enough rental housing available to accommodate the vast housing needs and municipalities are completely overwhelmed. Epic Village, a theme camp at Burning Man, is donating ready to use container housing that will house at least 75 people that will include teachers and families with special needs children in Santa Rosa. We’re calling it Oasis Village, and we need your support to make this project a success. This is truly a communal effort and everyone is invited to participate. Please join us!
WE HAVE SET A FUNDRAISING GOAL of $103,000 – DONATE HERE
- Transportation costs for seven containers to be transported round trip from Reno to Santa Rosa.
- Kitchen Supplies for the communal kitchen
- Attaining and maintaining additional housing units (tents, trailers, RVs)
- If we collect donations beyond our goal it will be used for rebuilding Sonoma County and spent based on the merit and impact of the projects.
ARE YOU LOCAL? VOLUNTEER WITH US! Please fill out our Volunteer Interest Form
The first housing containers arrive this week. We will need many volunteers over the next several months to support Oasis Village. In the beginning we need people who can help with making the space warm and inviting-setting up shade structures, tables, chairs etc. Once the village is set up, volunteers will be needed for cooking, gathering supplies and many other tasks.
DO YOU HAVE PORTABLE STRUCTURES, RVs/CAMPER TRAILERS TO DONATE?
Oasis Village has room for 25 RVs and Camper Trailers. Portable Structures are also needed to provide indoor play/reading spaces for children. Please contact carmenmauk at gmail.com if you can donate any of these items.
