Lane County Students Help Re-Build the McKenzie Community

A group of fire survivors realized that a crucial first step for families devastated by the Holiday Farm fire was the construction of a secure storage unit so they can start re-building their homes and lives. An amazing group of students, community allies, public agencies, and industry partners were eager to help out! The student teams went to work, and they constructed and placed 23 sheds on the properties of fire survivors. Along the way, the students earned high school credit, built important job skills in the construction trades, and learned how to be part of a positive impact in their communities. In all, this project tells the story of the way our community comes together to support one another in times of need. From agencies to businesses to individual volunteers, everyone pitched in to make a difference.

We are proud to share this amazing short documentary film created by Lane County high school students. The piece tells the incredible story behind the Future Build project where students, volunteers, and agencies came together to bring hope to the survivors of the Holiday Farm Fire in the McKenzie River Valley.

Media note: Lane ESD is authorizing the use of portions of this video, with credit given to the authors (Elmira student Rachel Matthews and 4J student Sean Stapleton) and Lane ESD.
