2023 Disaster & Storm 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.

Since late December, 2022, residents were isolated between one of six road closures. 

This means that supplies of food, fuel, medications and mail were unreliable. Kids have been out of school and employees have not had work. 

The Big Share has participated in four 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. 

Two more resupplies were successful in March and May, due to the efforts of our volunteers and funds from Community Association of Big Sur. 

As storms have continued to hit the coast, the road conditions are ever-changing. 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.
