Thanksgiving Basket Brigade -Chico | Nov 21


Each year Grandmaster Azad and his students raise funds to help over 200 local families in need with a complete gift basket of Thanksgiving dinner.  A $40 gift will provide dinner for a family of up to eight people.

The mission of Azad's Annual Thanksgiving Basket Brigade is to deliver Thanksgiving dinner baskets directly to many Chico area families in need. A typical basket includes a turkey, bread, baked goods, vegetables, gravy, pie, a roasting pan, and all other items needed to make a fantastic and memorable Thanksgiving dinner.


Please let us know if you know of a family who may need assistance this Thanksgiving. To qualify recipients MUST:
1. Be in need financially
2. Be a first-time recipient from Azad’s Thanksgiving Basket Brigade program
3. Be living in the Chico area
4. Have school age children

We hope you join us in making this year’s Basket Brigade successful in helping those families in our community faced with difficult financial situations. Together we can preserve Chico as a positive and loving community and, at the same time, teach our children the value and joy of helping those less fortunate than ourselves, the true spirit of Thanksgiving. We have all been blessed in so many ways. Let’s make the most of this opportunity to help others.

If you'd like to donate funds or volunteer your time, or if you know of a family in need who has children and who has not already received a basket from us, please contact us right away at 530-892-AZAD or email .


Please mail your checks to Azad’s Martial Arts Center- 313 Walnut Street, Suite 150, Chico CA  95928.

Northern California Residents Disaster Assistance

Residents of Butte, Lake, Mendocino and Yuba who suffered damage or losses from the devastating fires that began October 8, 2017 and continue to burn, can now register for disaster assistance with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), if they are able to do so.
The amendment to the presidential disaster declaration of October 10, 2017 now makes federal assistance available to eligible individuals and business owners in a total of six northern California counties: Butte, Lake, Napa, Mendocino, Sonoma and Yuba.
Survivors who primarily reside in one of the six designated counties can apply online at or by phone at 800-621-3362 or (TTY) 800-462-7585. Applicants who use 711 or Video Relay Service may call 800-621-3362. The toll-free numbers are open 7am to 10pm seven days a week.
Applicants will be asked for the following information:
•    Social Security number
•    Address of the damaged primary residence
•    Description of the damage
•    Information about insurance coverage
•    A current contact telephone number
•    An address where they can receive mail
•    Bank account and routing numbers for direct deposit of funds
Disaster assistance for homeowners and renters may include grants to help pay for:
•    Temporary housing
•    Essential home repairs
•    Uninsured and underinsured personal property losses
•    Other serious disaster-related needs not covered by insurance.

Low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) are available for businesses of all sizes, private non-profit organizations, homeowners and renters. Disaster loans cover losses not fully compensated by insurance or other recoveries.

FEMA grants do not have to be repaid. FEMA assistance is nontaxable and will not affect eligibility for Social Security, Medicaid or other federal benefits.
Registering with FEMA is required for federal aid, even if a survivor has registered with another disaster-relief organization, such as the American Red Cross.
Survivors should register even if they have insurance. FEMA cannot duplicate insurance payments, but underinsured applicants may receive help after their claims have been settled.

Flu Season & Vaccination Locations BCPH

Lab Confirmed Flu Cases Mark The Start of Flu Season in Butte County | Butte County Public Health

Flu activity is on the rise in Butte County with more than 16 lab confirmed flu cases reported by local healthcare providers. Since December 1st, severe flu cases have led to four hospitalizations in Butte County. The flu vaccine is still available at many pharmacies and clinics.
Flu season typically peaks in January or February and can last as late as May. For millions of people each year, symptoms of flu illness can vary from mild to severe, including: fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle aches, and fatigue. Severe flu complications can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Flu viruses are constantly changing from one season to the next. Vaccines released for this year’s flu are not as well matched as vaccines in the past, but are still an important step in protecting you and your loved ones and may reduce the severity of flu symptoms.

In addition to getting vaccinated, you and your family can help prevent spreading the flu by:
- Avoiding close contact with sick people
- Covering your nose and mouth with a tissue or your sleeve when you cough or sneeze
- Washing your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
- NOT touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Staying home from work or school if you have flu like symptoms


A free flu vaccination clinic will be offered by the Butte County Public Health Department (BCPHD) on Tuesday, January 27, from 2:00-4:00pm at 202 Mira Loma Drive in Oroville.
No appointments are necessary. Vaccines are available for people 6 months of age and older, including pregnant women. Both the flu shot and nasal spray vaccine (FluMist) will be available.
