The Rotary Club of Camarillo raised $10,000 for Thomas Fire Relief. Half was donated when they "passed the hat" at a meeting in January and those funds were matched by their Foundation. The check was given to the Downtown Ventura organization, the umbrella group that monitors funds directed to the Ventura Education Partnership for Thomas Fire victims.

Rotary District Governor John Weiss said "These donations remind us of the generosity so often shown by our members." A similar amount was raised for victims of Hurricane Harvey last year. Those funds went to two families for basic reconstruction. Their houses were mucked out and gutted and with  Rotary's help they again have livable homes. Foundation President Al Lowe said, "I’m very proud of our Club for sending a check for $10,000 to Houston for disaster relief."
