CSEA Kerman Chapter 279 donates to Paradise Fire Victims

In a joint effort with Kerman Unified School District and the FFA, CSEA’s Kerman Chapter 279 made a trip to Paradise, California to donate a motorhome full of blankets and non-perishable items to victims of the fire.  The motorhome was given to a gentleman who lost his home in the fire.  “We just opened our hearts to these people who lost everything,” said Jerry Chames, Regional Representative 30 & Chapter President, “Isn’t it amazing that the people who make the least amount of money always seem to give the most?”  The Chapter continues to accept donations of non-perishable items to donate, and will next focus on collecting school supplies.  Mr. Chames went on to express his sincere gratitude to the members of Kerman Chapter 279 for their generous donations, time, and efforts towards the cause.
