GFWC California Disaster Relief Fund
December 20, 2017
According to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, there have been 8,711 fires in the state which consumed 1.3 million acres, or about 2,000 square miles this year. That is an area larger than the state of Delaware! Thousands of structures have been destroyed including the homes of several GFWC clubwomen.
To help these members of our Federation family recover from such a devastating loss, GFWC California has established a Donation Fund. Anyone who would like to offer assistance may send a contribution to the GFWC California Disaster Fund C/O Reggie Mattox, 2867 Banyon Tree Lane, Hemet, CA 92545.
GFWC California President-elect Dori Kelsi stated, “We thank all of the clubwomen who have been sending their cares, prayers, and loving thoughts. We do need them and are thankful that our sisters care for us.”
Darby Frankfurth has risen from club chairmanships and officer roles, all the way to GFWC Florida state office.
