We at Russian American Community Services (RACS) are supporting the humanitarian efforts of Sts. Peter and Paul Church, our sister parish, which is welcoming refugees this very moment.
Five parish families have lost their homes and all belongings.
Letter from Archpriest Alexander Krassovsky, Rector of Sts. Peter & Paul Russian Orthodox Church in Santa Rosa, CA (Tuesday October 10th):
"The firestorm which hit Santa Rosa and its environs over the last several days is unprecedented in the history of our parish but, by the Grace of God, we have verified that all of our parishioners are safe and unharmed. Glory be to God! Unfortunately, five families in our parish have lost their homes. Our immediate concern here at Sts. Peter & Paul is to provide financial assistance to these families for basic needs, such as food, new clothing and other very basic necessities. Further, we are working on securing immediate, temporary housing back here in our area for these families, so that they may get their children back to school, themselves to work and to have a safe temporary home to begin the arduous process of dealing with insurance companies, federal aid agencies and so forth. Any financial assistance you can render can be sent through RACS http://racssf.org/index.php/donate – to whom we are already very grateful, along with our Russian Center – or directly to our parish at: Sts. Peter & Paul R.O. Church, PO Box 8277, Santa Rosa, CA 95407. Please note on your check “Fire Relief Fund.” Thank you and may God bless you all for your support and your prayers."
RACS is sending $3,000 to Parish Rector Fr Alexander Krassovsky immediately.
