Current estimates count more than 200 SRJC students, faculty and staff are without homes or have been displaced. The initial pledge of $100,000 will be distributed as early as next week with application details forthcoming.

SRJC officials have shut down all campuses since Oct. 9 and will keep them closed through Tuesday, Oct. 17, as the North Bay wildfires continue to threaten several communities across the Napa and Sonoma Counties.
