#SonomaStrong Fire Relief

*** We will be sending an email receipt to everyone who donated through this campaign in early January***

In the early morning hours last Monday many residents awoke to fire in  and around their homes, while the rest of Sonoma Valley was alerted by  the smell of smoke. For Rotarians, it was a call to action. Within  hours, Rotarians were providing food and basic necessities to fire  victims, evacuees and first responders. Since those early hours, Rotary  has helped to facilitate the donation, preparation and delivery of over 12,000 meals, mostly to first responders while they fight to  protect people and their homes all over Sonoma Valley.  Rotary is  facilitating the collection, organization, and distribution of basic  necessities pouring in from all over the state, getting help to those  who need it, where they need it, when they need it. Rotary has already  distributed over $100,000 in gift cards and many truckloads of goods.


In  the days and weeks ahead we are focusing our efforts on helping  displaced residents stabilize and rebuild. Rotary will directly provide  funding for food, clothing, home goods, kitchen goods, transitional  housing assistance, education grants, business rebuild grants, and  whatever is needed to help victims of this devastating disaster.  Together we will rebuild Sonoma. We are #SonomaStrong.


Rotary of  Sonoma Valley is coordinating the delivery of any needed service, goods,  or funds for the direct benefit of Sonoma Valley Fire victims,  evacuees, and first responders. The club is  one of over 34,000 clubs  comprising the largest service organization in  the world. Our club  supports our local and international community through financial and  hands-on support. 100% of the proceeds from this campaign will go to  continuing the work Rotary of Sonoma Valley members are already doing to  support fire victims, evacuees and first responders. 

Rotary's motto is "Service Over Self."
