CARR FIRE – REDDING

In response to the Carr Fire that has ravaged the North State (NorCal) region, the leadership of the five Redding Rotary Clubs have joined together to promote the Shasta Regional Community Foundation’s (SRCF) Community Disaster Relief Fund. With Rotary’s long history as a partner with the Community Foundation, we are confident of their trusted stewardship of donations and generous investors in the Carr Fire recovery over time. Please consider a donation today by donating online at http://www.shastarcf.org/funds/cdrf

Be sure to note #NorCalRotary in the notes section as you enter your donation.

Checks may also be sent directly to the Community Foundation at 1335 Arboretum Drive, Redding, CA 96003 or call 530-244-1219.

SRCF has a proven track record with the Boles Fire in Weed, CA. 100% of donations will be distributed with SRCF taking no administrative fees. (merchant fees will be charged by those institutions). A complete financial tracking of the donations and disbursements for the Boles Fire can be found herehttp://www.shastarcf.org/files/Handout_Grants_052516.pdf

Based on the history of other major fires (such as the Boles fire) complete recovery will be a 10+ year process and the SRCF is uniquely qualified to support both the urgent needs and the long term rebuilding of our community.

The five Redding Rotary Clubs anticipate matching donations from club members. Members please contact your club for details.
