A good problem to have: Carlton Complex no longer accepting donated goods

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: OKANOGAN COUNTY, Wash. - Okanogan County Sheriff, Frank Rogers wants to thank everyone who has donated items over the last two weeks for victims of the Carlton Complex fire but wants everyone to know they are no long accepting donations as they have enough. In a statement thanking the community, he said:

"If you feel that you still want to donate to the fire victims there are several funds set up that you can donate money to, the money will be for victims of the fire.

As for the donations that were at the Okanogan Fairgrounds, all of the perishable foods that were still left over have been donated to the local food banks to distribute out. All of the other donations have been moved to a storage facility and will be sent to the old grocery store in Pateros which will be opening up for fire victims. All of the other donation sites will be handled by those cities and jurisdictions that set them up.

As for the animal donations, everything we have received has been moved to the Okanogan County Fairgrounds, located at 175 Rodeo Trail Rd, Okanogan, Washington. We have a lot of donated items, including hay, grain, dog food, cat food, etc. If victims of the fire need these items please go to the fairgrounds and staff and volunteers there will assist you. You can also call 509-449-6606 for any questions or assistance.

Again we want to thank everyone for the overwhelming generosity to those in need. We are extremely grateful to all of you."

OKANOGAN COUNTY, Wash.- The people in charge at the Carlton Complex wildfires in Okanogan County say they can no longer accept any donated goods. The problem, they say, is that so many people donated so much that they simply ran out of room.

The following message was posted on the Carlton Complex's web page:

Thank you everybody who has offered help and goods to those affected by the wildfires. The generosity of donors has overwhelmed the capacity of Okanogan County resources to manage and store the donations. Effective immediately, donations of goods will no longer be accepted for victims of the Carlton Complex wildfires.

Items already collected will be moved to a central location, and later distributed to members of the community. If you'd still like to help victims of the Carlton Complex wildfires, you can always make monetary donations to the American Red Cross or other agencies providing help to those affected .Please see our Recovery page for more info.
