Paradise Camp Fire update:

Wednesday, November 14, 2018

There have been a lot of e-mails etc. circulating vis-à-vis efforts to help the folks up in the Paradise area deal with the after effects of the Camp Fire that has wreaked so much havoc.

For the foreseeable future we’re going to post the most current information that we have here on the opening page of the District 5160 DACdb website. 

Update as of Wed, November 14:

First of all, I’m excited to report that the Paradise Rotary Club WILL hold their regular meeting this week. They will meet at a temporary location of Catalyst, 330 Wall St, Chico, Ca.

Donations of clothing, etc.: Unless there is a request from some organization with specific items requested, we’ve been told that people should NOT be making donations of used clothing, etc. The process of sorting, storing, cataloging, etc. (and distributing) is simply beyond the capabilities of the individuals involved and the ability of the facilities available. 

Donations of $$, gift cards, etc. continues to be the preferred method of contributing. Donations sent to “Paradise Rotary Foundation”,  C/O Matthews, Hutton and Warren, CPAs,  2639 Forrest Avenue, Suite 110, Chico CA 95928, The EIN for your tax records is 26-2754805

To refer to the devastation in Paradise and surrounding areas as a ‘disaster’ unfortunately we’re beginning to understand is a major understatement. The outpouring of support has been amazing, but I’m afraid is but a drop in the bucket of what will be needed over the next weeks and months and probably years.

Our theme this year of “Be the Inspiration” is being lived over and over and I am incredibly proud of all that is being done.
