UPDATED October 31, 2017
Thank you for your generous donations to our Wildfire Relief Fund. As of October 31 we have received over $26,000 in donations. These donations have made it possible for us to assist a number of parish members and friends whose homes were destroyed or damaged. Contributions were also made to Catholic Charities of Santa Rosa, with whom we partner to help the homeless; to a group which is raising funds for nine Eritrean families who lost their homes and to those who lost wages.
Detailed records of donations and expenditures are being kept by Martin Thong our Parish Treasurer, and Bobbi Griovski, who assists him. Our records will also be sent to the Diocesan office.
Recovery from such devastation will be a long term process, so we will be carefully managing the funds we have in order to help those, down the line, who need it. Our parish is committed to respond wherever and whenever there is a need.
May God bless you for the care and concern you have shown for those who have suffered here in Sonoma County. We will pray for you and thank God for your generosity.
V Rev. Lawrence Margitich
