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!
