We want to recognize two of our employees who have really embraced the spirit of volunteerism! Tim Tedder and Budd McQueary have spent countless hours assisting victims of the Camp Fire and we are so proud to have them as part of our Westhaven family!
Tim Tedder, along with his wife and son, have been extremely generous with their time - including helping to feed 400 displaced people at the Gridley Fairgrounds with the 4G Foundation and Rolling Stone Pizza/Ozark BBQ. They also helped provide 250 meals at the East Ave Church in Chico and fed 1200 firefighters at Chico's Base Camp. The students of Paradise High School were also treated to a warm meal with the help of Tim and his family. And don't forget about the furry family members - the Tedder family also walked dogs at the Yuba-Sutter Fairgrounds 3 times/week. Thank you Tim and family for all you've done and continue to do!
Our other awesome volunteer, Budd, has been instrumental in helping out all the displaced animals at the various shelters in the region. Budd and his wife have dedicated hours and hours of their time at the Yuba-Sutter, Glenn County, and Butte County Fairgrounds, even starting their own non-profit - ASAP Animal Disaster Relief. After starting at the Yuba-Sutter Fairgrounds, they moved on to Butte County, where they helped the Red Cross open and run the animal shelter there. Once this facility was up and running, Budd and his family were asked by the American Humane Society to open and run a new shelter in Glenn County. They graciously and enthusiastically accepted the challenge! As you can see, Budd and his wife are pouring everything they have into helping others. We know all the fur babies and their humans appreciate the extra love and care!
We want to thank Tim, Budd, and their families for being such proactive members in our community with all their selflessness and generosity. Westhaven is beyond proud of you!
