La Mesa RV, the San Diego multilocation dealership company, has partnered with the Thousand Trails RV campground and resort in Riverside, Calif., to help victims of the wildfires in the San Bernardino area.
La Mesa unveiled a similar program late last week in which it partnered with San Diego-area campground operators.
In both cases, La Mesa is offering one week’s free use of a motorhome or towable RV to people who have been evacuated from their homes or whose homes were destroyed or damaged by the fires.
Victims of the San Bernardino-area fires will be able to stay in the La Mesa-donated RVs for one week at the Thousand Trails facility in Riverside.
La Mesa operates dealerships in San Diego and San Bernardino, and some of the company’s employees have lost their homes to the fires, said James Kimbrell, La Mesa’s founder and CEO.
San Bernardino-area fire victims interested in the program can call Lynn Heroux at the La Mesa location, 101 E. Redlands Blvd. in San Bernardino, at (909) 420-7100 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Time Monday through Friday. On Saturdays and Sundays, they should ask for Tom Perry.
Fire victims will need to go to the La Mesa location in San Bernardino to be assigned an RV and a campground space.
