Support for Sirs affected by the Camp Fire of 2018

SIR, a Northern California, multi-activity, non-profit organization for men is raising funds for the 139  members from our 2 branches based in Paradise, CA who have been devastated by the recent Camp Fire.  I am Derek Southern and honored to be the 2018 President of SIR. 

For 60 years we have improved our members’ lives through fun activities, luncheons, and events. Our 116 Branches cover most of Northern California from Bakersfield to the Oregon border and San Francisco Bay to Nevada. Our organization is run exclusively by volunteers, we have no offices or paid staff, so all the money we raise will be shared among the members of the 2 Paradise branches. The collected funds will be withdrawn from GoFundMe to an independent bank account. We will take guidance from a local advisory team as to how the funds should be shared. We will have an audit team to confirm that all the collected funds are distributed to the stated beneficiaries.

Our 139 members from around Paradise will appreciate your generosity. Further information about the SIR organization can be found at
