Local radio network hosts Dixie Fire fundraiser rallies

Susanville radio station 93-JDX sponsors two live broadcast events designed to raise money for Dixie Fire victims.

Firefighters from the Chester Fire Department and the Susanville Fire Department were at Holiday Markets in Chester and Lake Almanor from noon to 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 10 asking Plumas County residents to “fill the boot” with donations to help Dixie Fire victims.

The two fire departments will come together again to raise funds from noon to 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 17 at Susanville Supermarket IGA.

According to a flyer on the event, “make your charitable contribution payable to the Susanville Noon Rotary Club. All funds will be distributed through Rotary District 5190 in Lassen and Plumas counties.”

“We just provide the platform,” said Rod Chambers, the station’s owner. “It’s a repeat of the Camp Fire rally two years ago. That rally far exceeded our expectations, and it was for Paradise that was two hours away. Now we’re talking about communities in our own back yard.”

Chambers said the Camp Fire rally raised more than $70,000.
