Plumas Rural Services receiving financial donations for fire victims

Plumas Rural Services (PRS) is receiving financial donations for victims of the Dixie Fire. Former Greenville resident Alicia King Marshall organized a Go Fund Me campaign to specifically benefit residents of Greenville who lost their homes to the fire. PRS is receiving and administering these donations, which will provide $500 per household in the form of a prepaid credit card. Applications may be downloaded from the agency’s website or filled out at PRS’s main office at 711 E. Main Street in Quincy.

Funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis until the GoFundMe campaign donations are exhausted. Recipients will be required to provide identification and the address of their lost home to verify eligibility.

Supporters looking to send donations to victims in addition to those covered by the GoFundMe campaign can send monetary donations to Plumas Rural Services, Attn: Dixie Fire Victims, 711 E. Main Street, Quincy, CA 95971. All proceeds received by PRS via both methods will go directly to victims of the Dixie Fire. PRS is waiving all costs for financial management as well as directly covering the fees for preloading credit cards to distribute to victims.
