Claudia Frost, President of The Rotary Club of Brunswick, Maine, has learned from her son, Jon Eberly, how we can help.  Jon is the President of The Rotary Club of Marin Sunrise, California.  Jon reports:  
"It was a really devastating disaster and the worst fire in CA history. The beautiful little town of Paradise (about the size of Brunswick) was wiped off the map. The air here in San Francisco was the worst in the world (“code Purple”) all last week, which is considered hazardous to breathe  – equivalent to smoking a half-pack of cigarettes a day. Thankfully, the rain has come and the fire is contained. However, over 50,000 people are displaced, and tragically, almost 500 are still missing. PDG Pam Grey and Brian live in Paradise. Brian is the current President of the Paradise Rotary Club.  
They will be accepting donations to be used to assist folks in the short and long term via the “The Paradise Rotary Foundation”.  Since they are pretty sure that the Paradise Post Office is gone, they have asked that they be mailed c/o Scheer Memorial Chapel, 2410 Foothill Blvd, Oroville, Ca 95966.  There is also a GoFundMe set up by Paradise Rotary at for online donations."
