THE SIERRA SCENIC BYWAY & CREEK FIRE IMPACT
California’s largest single wildfire burned up one of the Sierra’s true travel treasures, the Sierra Scenic Byway. The Outside team visits the aftermath of the fire to see how this beloved road trip route has changed and to learn how to look at fire in a different way.
Rebuild Our Sierra is the fundraising campaign and ongoing rebuild effort supported by the Shaver Lake Visitors Bureau. Our goal is to unify fundraising efforts and distribute immediate funds as necessary to rebuild all of the communities and families affected by this fire.
Live Tiny Project
Tiny Project, Big Impact
Rebuild Our Sierra has partnered with the national non-profit OperationTinyHome (OperationTinyHome.org) and we are working to bring assistance to those who have lost their homes in the Creek Fire.
Our first tiny home will be going to a veteran who lost everything in the fire! He's been crashing on friends couches ever since.
Thanks to Operation Tiny Home, all we need is $30K to get our Veteran into his Tiny Home.
We have raised $15,000 of what we need and are in need of another $15,000 to get him back onto his property.
Please donate today if you can! https://www.rebuildoursierra.org/donate/.
Our first recipient of a Tiny Home is a disabled veteran who saved up and brought his retirement home with land and lost everything in the Creek Fire. He’s since been living on friend’s couches. We have a list of several other families who are interested in this unique solution to a long term housing challenge and others who need a place to live on their land while they work on rebuilding, which is a long and expensive process.
Sponsorship levels include:
● One-time sponsors
● Program sponsors that can provide a certain $ amount per home (**Note: Our goal is to provide 4 homes/year)
Please contact us if you’d like to craft a custom sponsorship. Our contact info is below. If you’d like to make a one-time donation, please send a check to the below address. Please include your email and we will email you a receipt.
We are in the process of identifying additional candidates who may be interested in a Tiny Home either as a temporary way to remain on their property while they rebuild or people who are interested in assistance with building a small-footprint home.
