In the summer of 2020, Oregon experienced one of the most devastating wildfires in its history. With over one million acres of land burned, these fires uprooted the lives of hundreds of Oregonians who lost their homes and belongings, and many families still have not recovered from their losses. To give back to the community, Rotary Interact District 5110 is launching a fundraiser dedicated to fire relief with a goal of $7,000 across all clubs.
South Eugene High School Rotary Interact is doing its part to help those affected by the fires. Firefighters all across Oregon selflessly fought to keep the fires contained and families safe. Through the Hearts for Heroes project, we are creating hearts with thankful messages for fire stations in the Eugene/Springfield area, with a goal of raising $750 for Rotary’s Fire Relief Fund.
For every $5 donated, we will create 2 hearts to give to local fire stations.
Any and all donations are truly appreciated. We will accept donations through April 2nd. To donate, click here.
