Resource fair for fire survivors is Saturday in Talent

Survivors of the 2020 fires in Jackson County can pick up supplies and learn about other resources during a distribution event Saturday at the historic Talent Town Hall.

The Fire Relief Center is hosting a bilingual resource fair and pop-up supply distribution event for fire survivors from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday at the historic Talent Town Hall parking lot, 206 E. Main St.

The Rogue Action Center and Rogue Climate have brought together partner organizations to share information and resources while providing supplies and free lunch from Loncheria Las Reyes food truck, courtesy of Rogue Food Unites.

Community members are invited to meet staff from Coalicion Fortaleza, Rogue Food Unites, Jackson County Library Services, Rhythm of Healing and more to learn about their programs and connect with staff and volunteers.

Bilingual ACCESS and Oregon Department of Human Services staff will be on hand to help with housing resources. Free nonperishable food, grocery staples and assorted hygiene and cleaning supplies will also be available at Talent Town Hall. Parking is available in the lot next to the building.

Rogue Climate and Rogue Action Center were two of the partners running the Fire Relief Center, which closed its storefront in Phoenix in September 2021 after providing supplies to 450-800 families each week for a year. The organizations said they intend to continue hosting pop-up supply events for fire survivors around the region through June 2022.
