On September 8, 2020, a small grass fire that started in Ashland, Oregon turned into the deadly Alameda Fire, which burned for about ten miles along the Bear Creek Greenway. Thousands of structures and businesses were destroyed and tragically, three people died in the disaster.  The SSSIO-USA Pacific Northwest Region volunteers sprang into action and purchased flashlights, extension cords, and hygiene kits, and shipped them to the Grants Pass Sri Sathya Sai Center, which delivered the supplies to relief centers in Ashland, Talent, Phoenix and Medford. Many people who lost their homes in the wildfires were elderly and residents of mobile homes in trailer parks – they were extremely grateful for the supplies, having lost almost everything in the fire.
