Our Kingdom is ok. Everyone is accounted for. Events and fighter practices are still happening. Our populace is working hard to help those less fortunate than themselves. If you have specific questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I know that everyone really wants to help. Once we know what help is needed, we will let you know. We do have three houses lost, and some people who still do not know. Right now it is important to give them time to grieve, get over the actual trauma, and figure out housing arrangements. It may be weeks or months before we know what these people really need.
None of these people are mainline SCA. One is effectively retired, the other two are basically Portrero war specific. Because of this I would recommend letting the local Barony handle replacement of any SCA specific items.
If you want to send gift cards to help, I would recommend Home Depot, Lowes, Target, or Walmart. The first primary recipients will likely be the SCA work crews buying materials in their quest to help rebuild local communities.
If you want to mail gift cards please mail them to:
Caid Disaster Relief
Moreno Valley, CA 92552
(this is the same address as the SCA archive, so it can be found in all of the kingdom newsletters)
Thank you to all the members of our SCA family for their care and concern for our wellbeing.
