St. John's Episcopal Church in Marysville was transformed into a Red Cross emergency shelter to house over 20 people who lost their rooms when a local hotel and commercial building were destroyed by fire this weekend. 

Red Cross called early the morning of Saturday, September 24 and could find no other place that would take the refugees. The Red Cross is actively searching for more permanent replacement shelter and is accepting donations to help these hotel residents, who lost all their property and valuables in a fire that struck very early Saturday morning.

Donations may be sent to St. John's or to the Yuba County Red Cross. St. John's is also actively involved in Food Shelf ministry and provides frequent lunches for the downtown homeless population in and around Marysville.
