Lunch Now Provided for our Wildfire Recovery Rebuild Project Build Days

Thanks to a generous donation from the Rotary District 5370 Charitable Foundation – Fort McMurray Fire Relief Fund, we are now able to launch our Wildfire Recovery Build Volunteer Lunch Program.

The foundation has granted $30,000 to the program- enough to provide lunches on every build day for each build volunteer for the next 5 Wildfire Recovery rebuilds.

Currently, we are actively building at two Wildfire Recovery rebuild projects, both in Beacon Hill.  We have three more rebuild projects in the planning and permitting stages, scheduled to start by spring of 2018.
