THANKS TO OUR SPONSOR:

Many Oregonians are in dire need following the Almeda Fire, the catastrophic blaze that burned down much of Phoenix and Talent in Southern Oregon. Community members throughout the state have formed a network of volunteers to meet the need. The Southern Oregon Relief Team has banded together to collect food, air purifiers, hygiene products and more supplies for fire-stricken residents. We talk with organizer Jesse Azzopardi about delivering supplies amid devastating wildfires.
