The Rotary Club of Calistoga, recognizing the financial toll the COVID-19 emergency has placed on many Calistogans, has donated $10,000 to be distributed by the UpValley Family Centers to families in need in the form of gift certificates to local food markets.

In addition, while we are unable to meet as a club, many Rotarians are donating their weekly lunch costs to also provide food for Calistoga families in need. “We saw the need and wanted to help,” said Club President Mary Hastings.
