Ever since news spread regarding the fires affecting the Abhayagiri community, many people have been asking how they can offer support and assistance. About a week ago, we posted a news article suggesting the offering of gift cards from a nearby grocery store.
In the past few days, we have received an overwhelming number of gift cards. The Abhayagiri community is deeply appreciative and we would like to share our gratitude for people’s generosity.
At present, the gift cards we have received are sufficient for our needs.
We recognize that there may still be interest in offering support to the Abhayagiri community in response to the Redwood Valley fires. We are currently considering other options and, once it becomes clearer as to what might be helpful, we plan to share this information on our website.
In the meantime, for those who wish to support our many neighbors who have already lost their homes along Tomki Road and throughout the Redwood Valley area, the local Community Foundation of Mendocino County provides a means to do so at http://www.communityfound.org/.
