School Districts are zoned specifically to serve a community based on size, population, and geographic location. They serve as the perfect safe zone for those affected by the fire to go to for support in their local neighborhood. Sonoma County Fire Relief is partnering with each of the school districts that were impacted by the fires and providing relief to everyone in need in their community.
Sonoma County Fire Relief is matching up schools throughout the United States with the schools that were affected by the fires. All monetary and physical donations collected at a site will go to the fire victims at the sister school and to their local community.
The "Cent's for Sonoma County" campaign solicits support in four ways:
1. Students donate coins in classrooms to participate in a points based competition.
2. Community members may make additional monetary donations in the office.
3. School members and community members may drop off donations of specific items we have determined are needed by the families in the local communities where the sister schools are located.
4. Corporations can sponsor the schools and/or match all donations.
