Disaster & Storm Recovery Support
Currently, Highway 1 on the Big Sur coast remains closed at Paul's Slide due to slides and washouts from ongoing winter storm events.
Beginning in late December, 2022, residents were isolated between one of six road closures.
This means that supplies of food, fuel, medications and mail were unreliable.
The Big Share has participated in five major resupply missions.
The first, on January 27th, 2023 was a multi-agency effort lead by Big Sur Fire with Monterey County and California Highway Patrol. Our volunteers personally delivered 8000 lbs of food and supplies to our South Coast residents via CHP helicopters.
On February 5th, 2023 The Big Share and Big Sur Fire took to the backroads with two trucks and a trailer, full of essential food, mail and medications.
The Big Share team has lead three more successful resupplies in March, May and June. The efforts of our volunteers and funds from Monterey County Storm Relief and YOU make this possible.
As disasters affect our community, our team continues to monitor the needs of our neighbors, and be ready for the next resupply mission.
As always, we appreciate your support in making our efforts possible. When you donate, your dollars go directly to purchasing supplies and fueling vehicles for transport.
