Give Help/Get Help

At Twin Lakes Church, we want to walk alongside struggling families and individuals and support you through life’s ever-changing seasons. We want to provide you with connection, consolation and comfort.

CZU Complex Fire Victims

Help families who have lost their homes in the CZU Complex Fire. Many need to still clean their property and begin preparation for rebuilding. Eventually, we will need volunteers who can help in this way. Right now, you can help out by purchasing new tools, donating money for new tools, and/or donating "like new" tools for the Community Tool Shed.  

The Community Tool Shed is a lending resource of tools available free of charge to the 100’s of families rebuilding their homes and rebuilding their lives following the CZU Complex Fire in August 2020.

Donation barrels located at

  • Scarborough Gardens in Scotts Valley,
  • LuLuLemon in downtown Santa Cruz, Aptos Ace Hardware and 2 Ace
  • Hardware locations in Watsonville on E Lake and Freedom.

To volunteer or donate, contact   or call 831-600-8426.

WE WOULD LIKE EVERY RESIDENT AND STAFF MEMBER TO RECEIVE A CARD OR NOTE OF ENCOURAGEMENT. We also want to match committed writers (commit to writing at least twice a month) with specific residents. Help us spread the hope in Jesus' name!
