Talent Fire Relief

Sawyer Paddles and Oars has been based in Talent, Oregon, for over 33 years. We were fortunate that our manufacturing facility was spared, but our community has seen grave destruction from last week's wildfires. The devastating Alameda fire has impacted many of our friends & families, and for those in our community who have lost their homes and businesses, financial support is the most impactful.
The long road of recovery is upon us with many funds needed for our community to rebuild.
80% of Phoenix Elementary School students lost their homes.
50% of the students at Talent Elementary lost their homes.
Please help us rebuild Talent to thrive once again. Any donation is helpful, and Sawyer will match up to $10,000 in donations, which will directly benefit Talent residents impacted by the fire. The first $5000 raised will go directly to help the families from Phoenix-Talent School District.
We appreciate your support of this community.
