PHOENIX, Ore. — As the slow process of recovering from the Almeda Fire continues, Lowe's says that it will host an event this Friday with free supplies for people who have been impacted.
The drive-through "bucket brigade" will have 500 buckets of supplies available distribution — each one including essentials like gloves, goggles, water, and masks. Buckets will be distributed on a first-come, first -served basis until they are all gone.
Lowe's associates from the Medford store prepared the disaster relief buckets, and the event itself will be held at the Phoenix Plaza Civic Center.
"Lowe’s associates have been actively providing supplies and support in communities across the Pacific Northwest that have been hit hard by fires since early this summer," the company said in a statement. "In response to the fires, Lowe’s has shipped more than 2,700 trucks with emergency supplies, including air purifiers, air filters, garden hoses, flashlights, smoke alarms and respiratory protection such as safety masks."
The drive-through event begins at 10 a.m. and runs until 2 p.m. on Friday.
