- Woody and his daughter started with their simple desire to help the community.
- That’s when the Emergency RV nonprofit organization was born.
- Its goal is to provide temporary homes to people who lost theirs in these recent hurricanes, storms, and wildfires.
Woody Faircloth and his daughter, Luna, started the Emergency RV in 2018. It’s a nonprofit organization that aims to provide a place to stay for families whose homes were devastated by California wildfires.
Now, they also help firefighters and their families.
“People have RVs (that) may be used once or twice a year, or maybe they don’t use them anymore at all,” he told MSN.
Instead of just letting them sit in their garage, people can use them to support the organization’s cause and help those who urgently need a roof above their heads.
Recently, the father and daughter duo extended help to 6 out of 7 volunteer firefighters who lost their homes and their fire station in Berry Creek, CA.
“We were driving through, trying to get people evacuated, drove by my house — I said, ‘Bye house’ and kept going,” one of the brave volunteers, Katherine Molohon, recalled.
She and her husband tried surviving in a small shed in her mother’s yard — that lasted until they received an emergency RV.
The nonprofit also provided RV to Reed Rankin, the fire station’s chief who also lost his home and his tools for work which should cost about hundreds of thousands of dollars!
Prior to getting an RV from Woody and Luna, he stayed in his truck with only the clothes on his back. He was so happy to have a new home and that, “It’s shocking,” and “it’s amazing.”
Emergency RV is currently trying to reach more people in need — affected firefighters in Oregon, health workers who fight COVID-19, and other families whose homes were destroyed by recent storms — so they could provide them with temporary shelters to keep them safe.
What started as a simple kindness and desire to help others has translated into an amazing group that is now helping a lot of people. Kudos to this father and daughter duo!
