Support for MVCAC Members Impacted by CA Wildfires

MVCAC Members,

We’re writing to relay the unfortunate news that some of your fellow members have lost their homes as a result of the current destructive wildfires that are ravaging our state. The bad news is, their homes are total losses.  The good news is they and their loved ones are safe.

We want to help any of our members who may be severely impacted by the wildfires in any way we can – whether it be through donations of gift cards (cash gift cards (Visa, AMEX, MC types), Bel Air, Raleys, Safeway, Costco, or Amazon, Kohl’s, Walmart, Target etc), OR cash/credit card donations can be sent directly to MVCAC who will then disperse them to the members directly. Notes of encouragement will also be relayed.

At this time, we are monitoring to see if we have other members who have been adversely affected by any of the California fires and do ask you to let us know if you are aware of others.

If you would like to mail in your donations or notes of encouragement please send to:

MVCAC

Attn: Rachel Hickerson Assistant Executive Director

1 Capitol Mall, Suite 800

Sacramento, CA 95814

We have set up online donations through our member portal. You are also welcome to call Rachel or Evan at the MVCAC Office with donations over the phone: 916-440-0826. In addition, we have a donation form that can be printed and sent to Rachel or Evan.

Thank you to everyone for your support. 

Sincerely,

The MVCAC Staff

Press Release: Residents Need to Protect Themselves from Mosquitoes as They Head Outside Amidst Relaxing of Stay-at-Home Orders

National Mosquito Awareness Week educates residents about the importance of eliminating mosquitoes and preventing the spread of mosquito-borne diseases

SACRAMENTO, June 17, 2020 – As the weather heats up and residents head outside, mosquito experts encourage community members to protect themselves from mosquitoes and the diseases they can spread when they bite. West Nile virus is the most prevalent mosquito-borne disease in the U.S. according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), California had the highest number of West Nile virus disease cases in the nation in 2019, with 225 cases reported. Comparatively, Texas had 32 cases and Florida had two cases in 2019. There is no human vaccine for West Nile virus, a disease that can cause debilitating cases of meningitis, encephalitis, and even death.

However, West Nile virus isn’t the only mosquito-borne threat in California. Newly established invasive Aedes mosquitoes can transmit viruses such as chikungunya, dengue, and Zika, all of which are costly to treat and can have long-term health and financial consequences. These mosquitoes are established in many areas of California and are steadily expanding their range.
