We've now heard the devastating news out of Wenatchee about the loss of homes and property damage. Several of our congregations are in the thick of it, and are working with their local response agencies to serve those in need. We have member families that have lost their homes and many others are displaced because of continuing threat from fire. We have re-established the fund that worked so well last year. We ask that you make checks payable to EWAIDS and marked for NW Fires in the memo. Please mail checks to Region 1 FSO P.O. Box 94432 Seattle, WA 98124-6732
