Mosier Creek Fire Recovery

Mosier Creek Fire Copter.jpg

Mosier is an amazing, generous community, ready and willing to step up in times of need. A huge thank you to everyone who has already donated, reached out to help and offered assistance!

In August 2020, a fire on Mosier Creek burned nearly a thousand acres, forcing hundreds to evacuate and destroying over a dozen buildings. An entire family—4 generations—lost ALL of their residential structures, tools, belongings, and recreation equipment.

Knowing these families would be in need of assistance and that there would be an outpouring of support from friends and neighbors, Main Street Mosier positioned itself to be the community connection. We put out a call for donations of goods and services that would help those affected by the fires get back on their feet as smoothly as possible, and Mosier did not disappoint. Hundreds of donations flooded in. There are still some key items needed but we are so appreciative of those who have given so far. Please consider the list below and see if you can contribute necessary goods, services, or make a monetary donation.

Please do not drop anything off unless someone is on-site to receive your donation.

Our goal is to decrease the storage burden on families trying to recover/rebuild and minimize their need to manage donations, including those that are duplicative. If the items donated are duplicates or not needed by the families, MSM will hold a sale to raise funds necessary to purchase additional requested items. Anything left will be paid forward as a donation to other families in need.

We want to know if you were impacted by the Mosier Creek Fire and have not yet connected with us. Please contact Elizabeth at 541-806-0868 to discuss any immediate needs and how the community may best assist as homes and households come back together.
