EUGENE, Ore.— The Holiday Farm Fire evacuation center is on the move again.

On Saturday, volunteers cleared the parking lot of the Masonic lodge. Hundreds of items are now in semi-trucks waiting for a new location.

Organizers are working with local, state, and national organizations to find a more permanent spot. Dan Isaacson, operations coordinator for the center, said the location will still be in an easy location for remaining evacuees.

“The idea is to transition this into a longtterm operation,” Isaacson said. “Obviously the needs of people who have been evacuated don’t stop because the smoke went away. There is a lot of folks who will be in this position for a long time.”

Isaacson said they still need donations for those who cannot return to their homes. Donations are especially needed for people who don’t have homes to go to.
