Governor's Message

Fellow Rotarians,
 
Over the past few days, I have received many questions and emails regarding our districts plans to help those affected by the Carr fires in Redding. I am outlining two options below for your consideration to address things now and in the future.
 
1. Donations: After several phone calls, yesterday with my fellow Governors, our RI Director John Matthews and the Salvation Army Major Ivan Wild; District 5160 & District 5130 (who have been affected as well in Mendocino and Lake counties) have determined that establishing funds for donations that will be given directly to an organization on the ground, we worked with previously, serving the victims of the fires in both districts was the most effective option for us. 
 
The 5 Area Redding clubs have organized to create a fund as has District 5130 (North Bay). The local relief organization assisted them in last years fires in the North Bay and 100% of the funds go directly to the needs of the victims from those in the fight to make things better. Our donations will help provide the resources they need to be able to quickly respond to victims needs and where best to apply it. Things like gift cards, gas cards, etc. are indispensable during these times.
 
I humbly ask an encourage each of you to consider a donation of any size to our District 5180 Wildfire Relief Fund to help those affected by these terrible fires.
 
You can send checks to:
 
Rotary District 5180 Foundation
4917 Olympia Court
Carmichael, CA 95648
Please note that it is for Fire Victims in the memo.
 
Or you can click on this link to donate electronically: 
 
 
2- Direct Involvement - Another option for us is if you want to get more directly involved as an individual or club, our partner The Salvation Army is on the ground running 7 relief centers in the affected areas.
 
You can contact Major Ivan Wild of the Salvation Army and a member of the Rotary Club of Sacramento at 310-989-2410 or Major Keith Botchin at 951-205-9806.  They are manning and providing relief in feeding & evacuation centers and await your call if you want to be on the front lines assisting.
 
Our hearts break for those victims so please keep them in your prayers and thoughts and do what you can to help these families. Many Rotarians in our district our hosting families from the area or know people who have lost everything so this affects us all in different ways and I know some of you have already been up there to assist friends and family.
 
Regards,

District 5180 Human Trafficking Project

"It doesn't happen here".  This is the most common response when someone mentions sex trafficking in our area.  But the Sacramento region is considered to be a hotbed for sex trafficking in the United States with California recording the highest volume of what many call "modern-day slavery."  With the recent approval of a significant, ground-breaking grant from The Rotary Foundation, Rotary District 5180 is stepping up to work with local agencies and governments to combat this problem through prevention efforts.

Working with clubs throughout the district, we will fund an education and a public awareness campaign with approximately $340,000 in combined grant and local funding.   The vision is to create a sustainable large-scale project in the Sacramento region to fight human trafficking.  The goal is to create a project that can be replicated globally through Rotary's over 1.2 million membership network of 35,000 clubs worldwide.
