FUNDRAISER FOR FAMILIES WHO LOST HOMES IN SHOCKEY FIRE: FRIDAY, OCT. 12 IN JACUMBA
October 1, 2012 (Jacumba) – “There is hope for the families who were affected by the wildland fire,” says Lorrie Ostrander, who has been organizing a fundraiser to help the 11 families who lost their homes in the Shockey Fire. “With the help of Alpine Albertsons, Jacumba Women's Club, Jacumba Lounge, Manzanita Diner and other local residents, we are having a dinner and all donations will be given to the families who lost everything.”
The benefit dinner will be held on Friday, October 12 from 4-8 p.m. at the Jacumba Highland Senior Center, 44681 Old Highway 80 in Jacumba 91934. A $5 donation at the door is requested.
If you have a little extra, trust me on this, you will do a mitzvah... to go all Jewish on you.
So you know, the damage was extensive, but it did not reach the threshold where the county could request a state, let alone federal funds, through emergency declarations... so these families will not have access to either state or federal funds.
