Help the Friends of the Round Valley Public Library raise $8,000 for an emergency generator! In this time of ever-increasing power outages, the Friends are embarking on a project to install a backup generator for our building that will allow us to provide services to the community in times of wildfires and other emergencies. This project will enable us to maintain a reliable large generator in order to keep the building open with as many services available as possible –including, at the minimum, internet service and water.
The Friends applied for and received a grant from the Community Foundation of Mendocino County for $19,000 with the commitment that we need to provide the rest of the money to complete the project, which is where you, our beloved community, comes in! We need to raise $8,000 for this generator project.
We realize that, during this COVID-19 crisis, it can be difficult to donate to community organizations that we love and appreciate, but, if at all possible, we hope you will contribute to this Go Fund Me campaign.
Please share this campaign with your friends far and wide! Even if they do not live in Round Valley, they well may want to support an organization that is so important to our remote rural community. All donations are tax deductible.
