As you are aware, the village of Lytton was devasted by wildfire, leaving many people homeless and taking refuge in nearby cities. 

The initial call for help from Write to Read Team member Sue, Past President of the Rotary Club of Merritt Sunrise, set this initial Immediate Needs Initiative into motion and the Rotary BC Wildfire Relief Team – Write to Read Project BC was formed. When our Rotary Family asks for help, the answer is always – how can we serve? And in the Write to Read family it is then –let’s get’ter done!

We are continuing to request donations for the purchase of gift cards be made via the Rotary Club of Steveston-Richmond Charitable Society (RCoSRCS) as the 1000 plus evacuees from Lytton will have ongoing immediate needs while the mid- and long-term plans are put into place.
