One Man Delivers Donated RVs to Wildfire Victims & Has Housed 95 Families

Good News Daily

His kindness has housed over 95 families

Woody Faircloth, the brain behind the non-profit Emergency RV, takes donated RVs and pairs them with new owners who have experienced homelessness because of wildfires around California. With his daughter, Luna, in tow, Faircloth delivers the RVs to their new owners and helps them get set up in their new homes on wheels.

Those who get to own one of Faircloth's donated RVs would otherwise often wait months for emergency housing. Last year, many wildfire victims even set up "tent towns" while waiting for emergency housing which rendered them homeless.

After seeing how many people lost their homes to last year's Camp Fire in California and learning that one man escaped the fire with some of his belongings and family in tow in his RV, Faircloth asked his daughter how she felt about possibly finding an RV and delivering it to a family so they could have a home for the holidays.

Inspired by stories of resilience during wildfire season, Faircloth set up a GoFundme, raised enough money for his first RV donation, and delivered it with Luna as his passenger and co-pilot. Many people who get Faircloth's donated RVs are firefighters or other first responders who have worked tirelessly to fight natural disasters.

Eventually, Faircloth would like to expand Emergency RV to help with other natural disaster survivors. With his business growing and evolving, Woody and Luna are inspired to help even more people in need and cannot wait to be able to expand and help many other natural disaster survivors.

We're lucky to live in a world with people like Woody and Luna.
