Sonoma Valley High School junior collects donations for Camp Fire
Sonoma Valley High School junior Ella Sutter organized an impromptu collection of donations for Camp Fire survivors on Sunday afternoon at Sonoma Valley High School.
Seven truckloads of donations were collected in over two hours, plus an additional huge trailer was packed to the rim, said Sutter, who is the daughter of Stefanie Sutter and Prestwood School Principal Jason Sutter.
Two of the trucks were packed with supplies for animal shelters, one truck with baby supplies and another with shelter supplies. The last two cars were filled with items for the first responders.
Sutter’s team assembled more than 200 care packages filled with snacks, eye drops, toothbrush and toothpaste, mouthwash, lip balm, hand lotion and cough drops.
“It was pretty amazing how this was just an idea Saturday morning and now 48 hours later we had this huge caravan delivering supplies to Butte County,” said Sutter. “The amount of people who came together to make this happen was incredible.”
SVHS is not an ongoing drop-off location for supplies; Sutter’s effort was a one-time event.
