CHICO, Calif. - Aaron Rodgers has announced he has created a long-term recovery fund for Butte County in the midst of the Camp Fire. 

North Valley Community Foundation sent out a notice that it has partnered with Butte County native Aaron Rodgers to create the "Aaron Rodgers NorCal Fire Recovery Fund," to address our communities’ long-term recovery needs with an initial $1 million donation.

“If any good can come from such utter devastation it is witnessing acts like that of Aaron Rodgers. He has shown up during our greatest time of need. Aaron’s commitment to our communities’ long-term recovery and to the health and wellness of the children impacted by the Camp Fire are a testament to his heart, leadership, and generosity. On behalf of this entire community we are so deeply grateful for Aaron and his support now,” said Alexa Benson-Valavanis President and CEO North Valley Community Foundation

The Aaron Rodgers NorCal Fire Recovery Fund will support the victims of the Camp Fire in Butte County, CA and, in addition to meeting their basic needs, will focus on:

Kids Programs (in school, after school, extracurricular)
Youth and High School Sports
Housing (temporary structures for displaced Paradise residents as they rebuild)
The attention of someone as accomplished as Aaron Rodgers will make all the difference to the people affected by this tragedy as they begin the long process of rebuilding and recovering. Having the support, both financial and emotional, of Aaron Rodgers and those who are motivated by him will have a substantial effect on the long-term recovery efforts in Butte County. Special thanks to State Farm and Neighborhood of Good #Retweet4Good initiative that is donating up to $1M ($1 for every ReTweet).
