Rotary helps wildfire victims

Rotary members are mobilizing to help provide relief as wildfires continue to rage throughout California. More than 220,000 acres have been scorched as wildfires continue to rage. To date, 32 people have been confirmed dead.

The Rotary 5130 Fire Relief Fund is now accepting cash donations to support those in Napa, Sonoma, Lake and Mendocino counties.

“The magnitude of the devastation that is occurring right now in the North Bay and wine county is vast and far reaching.  The recovery and rebuild is going to be a long process but we are confident that we can lead the way in bringing these communities back.  Rotarians know how to get things done and won’t stop until we reach the finish line,” said Bob Rogers, Rotary 5130 District Governor.

The Rotary 5130 Fire Relief Fund is administered by Rotarians and supports a multitude of areas of need as identified, including but not limited to; small business grants, housing, shelter support, grief counseling, unmet needs and any other assistance to the businesses and residents that have been displaced by this tragedy.  100% of all donations will be used to support the fire survivors with no fund overhead expense.
