Rotary helps wildfire victims
Rotary clubs and the Rotary Foundation are helping victims of deadly wildfires in California.
More than 220,000 acres have been scorched and more than 40 people have been confirmed dead.
“The magnitude of the devastation that is occurring 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 Foundation has set up a special fund to collect donations. You can contribute here to The Northern California Fire Recovery Fund #615.
Rotary clubs and districts are also collecting funds for disaster relief in their communities. Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation do not administer these funds but provide this information as a service. More information can be found on their websites.
