Riverside's Sendai Relief Fund

The City of Riverside expresses its deepest condolences to all who are affected by the earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan, especially its Sister City Sendai.

By now you have probably seen the alarming images or at least heard of the devastation along the east coast of Japan. Sendai was one of the worst hit areas, located just 105 miles from the epicenter of the quake and directly in the path of the tsunami that followed.

Riverside and Sendai have been friends since 1951 and sister cities since 1957 in what is one of the oldest continuous sister city relationships in the United States. Over the past five decades there have been museum, citizen, youth, and governmental exchanges between the two cities. In 2007, on the 50th anniversary of the relationship, Sendai gave Riverside the gift of a Japanese Garden at White Park in Downtown Riverside. Riverside’s 50th anniversary gift to Sendai was a giant orange sculpture that commemorates the citrus heritage of Riverside as well as the historic ties between the two cities.

Ronald O. Loveridge, Riverside’s Mayor said, "The past exchanges of friendship between Riverside and Sendai have been many, and they have been meaningful. If there ever was a time to extend our hand of friendship, that time is now."

If you wish to make a donation in person, check and cash payments are accepted at City Hall in the Mayor’s office, 3900 Main Street, 7th Floor, Riverside, CA 92522.

All donations are tax deductible and will be placed in a separate account designated for the receipt of donations for Sendai.
100% of donated funds will go directly to the City of Sendai for them to use for their recovery needs.

If you have questions, please call (951) 826-5311.
