We have been given a rare, once-in-a-generation opportunity to shape Sequoia Park’s future for the next 100 years and we need your help.
Whether you are an individual with only a few extra dollars to contribute, a small business able to make a larger donation, a local contractor who can donate some time or expertise, a landscaper who would like to help improve the part, or a well-funded organization contemplating a positive, community-oriented, project to express civic pride and involvement; please make a contribution this holiday season to the Sequoia Park Improvement Fund.
The Community Access Project for Eureka (C.A.P.E.) is organizing a Winter Holiday Gift Program for local children who reside at the Eureka Rescue Mission Women’s Shelter and The Serenity Inn as well as children served by the Betty Chinn Homeless Foundation.

C.A.P.E. would greatly appreciate monetary donations to help ensure every child receives a holiday gift!

Greg Parnell is coming into town and he wanted to do a special CAPE fundraiser Zumbathon. If you’ve ever been to one of Greg’s events, you know they’re a blast. If you haven’t, now is the time to be there.
A special opportunity is available to support an individual on their journey by gifting the healing benefits of live music.
