“We had a storage facility full of costumes yesterday and more delivered today. At the end of the afternoon, there was almost nothing left!” the police department wrote on Facebook Friday. “This was a truly amazing event that couldn’t have taken place without all of the generous donations.”

According to ABC News, the wildfires that started earlier this month have killed more than 42 people and burned more than 245,000 acres of land. More than 100,000 residents have been displaced by the fires.
