Camp Fire in Paradise California, Help the Victims!

An Appeal through the Russian American Community Services (RACS).
 
The deadliest fire in California's history affects thousands. We have been asked to assist the Chico, CA Sts. Cyril and Methodius parish to help reconstruct the lives of area families who suffered in this tragedy.

100% goes to the cause. 

...and it is only 30% contained


The sheer magnitude of this fire! The city of Paradise is all gone. The closest city of Chico, half an hour away, is busting at the seams trying to absorb 50,000 Paradise evacuees. According to Fr. Ian: "All of Paradise residents are here in Chico." Chico population is est.100,000.

RACS sent $5,000 this morning to begin the process of helping our brethren in need. Whatever you send to RACS will be targeted to those displaced, hungry, cold, and next week – wet.
