On August 4, 2021, the Dixie Fire ravaged Greenville, California, a town of 1,000 and home to Evergreen IGA Market. The blaze left a trail of destruction in the downtown area, burning historic buildings built in the 1800s when the town was a prominent community in the California gold rush.

Fortunately, Evergreen Market IGA was left standing in downtown Greenville. Nearly all 20 store employees, however, lost everything in the fire and are currently displaced as they are not allowed back into city limits. We have setup this GoFundMe  campaign so that we can help the employees get back on their feet and begin the process of rebuilding their lives and their community.

Any amount donated will go directly to the store owner, Amandeep Patel, who directly distribute the funds to each employee.
