Camp Fire- Chico/Butte Rugby Family Support
Good Afternoon - this message is going to all NCRFU club members -
As most of you know, many of our fellow ruggers have been affected by the camp fire. I am sure that many of you would like to provide some direct help. The Chico Rugby community is setting up a way to help - as that info becomes available, we will send that along. In the meantime, there are a few ways to pitch in:
Rugby NorCal has set up a gofundme account to provide direct help -
Baracus, Colusa and Seahawks are collecting items and trailering them to Chico. If others are also organizing please let us know so we can share your info.
Baracus - contact Charlie Coffee - firstname.lastname@example.org
Colusa - contact Christian Cowsert - (925) 766-0308
Seahawks - contact Dan Nagle - email@example.com
