Carr Fire

 

Fellow Soroptimists and friends! Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this horrible fire. The Carr Fire began Monday and its growth was explosive, fueled by strong winds, low humidity and scorching temperatures, authorities said.
On Thursday morning, the blaze was burning across 20,000 acres, fire officials said. Within 24 hours, it had spread across an area the size of the District of Columbia. It has taken the lives of two people, which touches all of us, in particular District 1. It’s been a busy day though, fielding the offers for help, and corresponding with our most effected clubs, SI Downtown Redding and SI Redding. We have set up a donation Paypal button below, if you want to help!

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.
