Rim Fire Relief Efforts
Rim Fire from Crane Flat
Sonora, CA -- Many of you want to help those affected by the Rim Fire and Sonora Area Foundation can assist you in doing that. The Foundation is taking donations for fire relief and recovery from the impacts of the Rim Fire in the south county area.
"As we did with Hurricane Sandy last year, we will be coordinating our efforts with local officials, who will help to identify appropriate organizations to direct grants from our Local Emergency Services Support Fund," said Ed Wyllie, Executive Director of the Sonora Area Foundation.
One hundred percent of the donations will be used to help recovery efforts from the Rim Fire. The Foundation has already delivered grants to Catholic Charities and the local chapter of the American Red Cross. Wyllie says on Tuesday they will be asking the Foundation's Board of Directors to authorize a pro-active grant to further aid in the relief efforts.
You can donate on the Foundation's website go to the Local Emergency Services Support Fund.
Donation can also be made by check to the Sonora Area Foundation. Please put "Rim Fire Recovery" on the memo line. You can mail or drop checks off at the office on 362 S. Stewart Street, Sonora, CA 95370.
