EUGENE, Ore. -- For Dawson Davis, it's hard to imagine that severe wildfires are happening right in his backyard.

"Growing up here, it's definitely hard to think that all of this is even real," he said.

People bring donations for people affected by the Holiday Farm Fire.

The North Eugene High School senior and his family spent Thursday standing in parking lots of various grocery stores on River Road.

Food, drinks, paper goods and other essential items filled the bed of his father's truck. The family delivered all items to Silke Field at Springfield High School, where many evacuees from the Holiday Farm Fire are keeping safe.

Davis, who plays football at North Eugene, is also a member of local Pylon team, MVP 7 on 7. He said he knows several teammates from the Thurston community who have been impacted by the fires that need support.

"I think you can try and make an impact," Davis said. "Anything helps you know. We'll deliver it for you if you come and get it. Five bucks, that's all we need."
