To help those affected by the Camp Fire, especially children, Dickson Realty agent Brock Marquez is working with local nonprofit Ashlee’s Toy Closet to collect donations that will be delivered directly to Chico, California.

“Whatever someone is willing to give, we’ll take, and we’ll figure out the best way to donate it,” Marquez said.

Some of the most needed items include gift cards, gloves, shovels, new toys, and new blankets, said Ashlee Smith, 13, who launched Ashlee’s Toy Closet in 2007 to help the victims of the Angora Fire in South Lake Tahoe.

“Our primary goal is to get new toys for the kiddos, but we know adults come with the kids,” said Ericka Smith, Ashlee’s mom.

Ashlee’s Toy Closet will collect donations from many locations in Reno, Sparks and Tahoe, and then deliver those items to people in need in the Camp Fire area. To donate at a Dickson Realty location, visit one of these places before Friday, November 16.
