Hay Drive Organizer Creates GoFundMe for Klamathon Fire Victims

Earlier this month, Jana Toney with the help of the Shasta View 4H club organized a hay drive so victims could feed their animals. Because of rain the day before the event, the Hay Drive did not get as many bales of hay for donations as planned. Now Toney has created a GoFundMe to gather more donations.

HORNBROOK, Ore. -- On July 5th, the Klamathon Fire barreled through Hornbrook, burning more than 38,000 acres and destroying more than 80 buildings, including homes and barns and supplies like hay.

Earlier this month, Jana Toney with the help of the Shasta View 4H club organized a hay drive so victims could feed their animals. Because of rain the day before the event, the Hay Drive did not get as many bales of hay for donations as planned. Now Toney has created a GoFundMe to gather more donations.

"These people were abandoned when the Carr fire started. And this gives everybody an opportunity to help everyone who is still in need. [The GoFundMe] would enable them to finally get on with their lives," said Toney.

She hopes to raise $7,000 before snow begins to fall this winter. $5,000 will go to hay, the other two will go toward fence posts.
