Physician families connecting to create a healthier Sonoma County by improving the lives of those in need

2 WAYS TO DONATE 
TO SONOMA COUNTY PHYSICIANS AND FAMILIES

The CMA Alliance has established a “Disaster Relief Fund” to collect donations to help physician families move forward after the disaster in Sonoma and Napa. Our immediate concern are the families of Alliance members; as the donations come in and the fund grows, we will be able to broaden our assistance to other physician families. So far, 28 Alliance members’ families have lost their home in the Santa Rosa area, and 2 in Napa. 

The CMA Alliance will be collecting funds to be disbursed to help meet the immediate needs of the physician families. You can donate online below:

click here to donate

Or, mail your donation to:  

CMA Alliance, PO Box 12605, 
Bakersfield, CA 93389-2605

Identify on the memo of the check, “Disaster Relief Fund” 


While the Alliance is raising money for our community in general, The California Medical Association Foundation has started a fund for specifically to aid physicians and their communities.

I know many of you are unable to donate, but when your friends and associates across the country ask how they can specifically help physicians, you can send them to this link:

The SCMAAF is now on WhatsApp!

Download the WhatsApp application for your smart phone and sign up. Then email Patty Lyn Tweten and she'll add you to our SCMAAF Chat Threads!

WhatsApp is one of most popular texting applications in the world. You can download it easily to your smart phone. It works a lot like Facebook Messaging app, but you don't need to be a Facebook member to use it.

Currently, the SCMAAF has 2 chat threads on WhatsApp — Meetup and Weekly Blast.

The Meetup chat thread is where you can send and receive invitations for impromptu gatherings. For example, if you're going to the beach or out for a hike, share it on the Meetup thread to invite other SCMAAF members to meet you there.

The Weekly Blast thread is where you'll receive weekly updates and info about SCMAAF events and activities. You will also be able to comment on that information.

    The alliance would like to be a part of your recovery!

    Many fire victims have expressed how much the loss of sentimental holiday ornaments and decorations is emotionally painful. While we cannot bring back those special objects, we would like to help start a new collection. 

    We want to help you to start building new symbols
    of hope and love.

    We are hosting a get-together at Favorite Things, a unique gift shop in Santa Rosa. We invite you to bring your child or grandchild — no matter their age. Or, you can invite them to join us. They can pick out a special token of love for you and your family that the Alliance will pay for. 

    Please feel free to share this invitation with any fellow physician families who have lost their homes.

    If you need transportation, please contact Alliance Member, Melody Morales, 303-552-6438, mmeintesmorales@yahoo.com
