FIRST: AN IMMEDIATE RELIEF FUND FOR SONOMA, NAPA, MENDOCINO & LAKE COUNTIES MANAGED BY LOCAL ROTARIANS

Donations are being accepted to benefit the victims of the disastrous fires in Sonoma, Napa, Mendocino and Lake Counties through a tax-deductible foundation organized by District 5130, which serves those counties.  Contributions can be directed to District 5130 and a Rotarian-led committee will direct immediate support to community members affected by the fire.

Go to www.larca5130.org to learn more about the fund and how to make contributions.
 
It is stressed that in-kind donations of clothing, footwear, and other goods are not needed, as it is difficult to distribute these items to people who can use them.  Experience has shown that these items often sit unused for long periods of time.  Monetary donations are more easily distributed and are best used by the victims in order to be able to purchase more exact needs.
