Harvey Relief Donations!

Soroptimist make a difference, and you can too!

Soroptimist International of Bidwell Rancho is sending donations to SI Alvin and SI Austin at this time of the disaster. Many of us want to help, but aren’t sure how. This is what we’ve heard from our club in Alvin:

“Thank you so much for your heartfelt message and offer of support. This storm has been huge and heartbreaking. This morning we were working to get support for the local shelter. That shelter is now being transported to another location. Since the rain just stopped this evening we are not sure we have a true plan of (how) our club will be able to assist our community. As soon as we have a plan I’ll let you know. Thank you again for your support.”

Right now, just getting them money for pillows, blankets, towels, toilet paper, trash bags, paper towels, hand sanitizer, paper plates, air mattresses, and water (items on their request list) will make a difference. Please donate today and add the notation “Harvey”. Donations may also be made by check, payable to SI Alvin or SI Austin, and mailed to HARVEY, C/O Soroptimist International of Bidwell Rancho, PO Box 9170, Chico, CA 95927.

Thank you  and please follow the “Make a Donation” Button below!

Soroptimist International of Bidwell Rancho

Soroptimist International of Bidwell Rancho-Chico is a group of professional women who strive to make our community and world a better place for women and girls. We are a chapter of Soroptimist International, a worldwide volunteer organization for women. Working in conjunction with this immense organization, we evaluate conditions in our community and decide how best to address local needs. These needs can range from funding a shelter for women who have been trafficked, to holding seminars for at-risk girls, to purchasing bus tickets for needy children. We believe that the club level of Soroptimist are the muscle that moves the mission “to improve the lives of women and girls”. Without the work and dedication of local clubs, Soroptimist programs would not reach the women who need these resources. Our club is dedicated to providing resources that empower women and girls to achieve their potential and improve their lives here in our community and around the world.
