100% of donations collected by the Camp Fire Community Cash Fund will be distributed to Paradise and surrounding communities thanks to the Angels-Murphys Rotary Club and Paradise Rotary Club.

Every little bit helps.  While donations of goods are greatly appreciated, what the community groups need now is cold hard cash so they can help meet the evolving needs of the many people displaced by the fire.
