FoodMaxx helped fundraise $17,000 for The Salvation Army to help their Carr Fire relief efforts.

“I would like to extend a warm thank you to all those who donated,” said Charla Giles, Vice President of Store Operations for FoodMaxx. “This fundraiser would not have been possible without the generosity of our shoppers and the community.”

FoodMaxx launched the fundraiser in wake of the Carr Fire on July 27th and ran through August 5th – 100% of proceeds will go to helping aid local victims. Four FoodMaxx stores participated in the fundraiser:

  • 2051 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway, Chico
  • 1160 Oroville Dam Blvd, Oroville
  • 94 Belle Mill Landing, Red Bluff
  • 1330 Churn Creek Road, Redding

Carr Fire burned 1,080 residences and produced over 20,000 evacuees. The Salvation Army helped serve 17,000 meals, gave hundreds of gift cards and provided over 400,000 essential items such water and blankets. The Salvation Army deployed multiple Emergency Disaster Service teams from around Northern California, Oregon and Washington to serve evacuees and first responders.

The Salvation Army is dedicated to providing assistance to those in need 365 days a year. To continue to support wildfire relief efforts, visit or call 800-SAL-ARMY.
