Late in the evening on Sunday, October 8, 2017, multiple wildfires erupted throughout the Northern California counties of Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino. These massive and unprecedented fires traveled with devastating intensity and speed. At publication, these fires still rage and have traveled into Lake and Solano counties, as well.
Our beloved region has suffered more than words can describe. The destruction is beyond comprehension and a full accounting of what has been lost will take some time. This is a process. We must be patient.
How to help
In the coming weeks, months, and years, rebuilding will take place. This includes the physical transformation of the impacted areas, as well as the strengthening of the social, emotional, and economic vibrancy of this beautiful region we call home.
In the midst of this tragedy, we are hopeful. We have witnessed the resilience and love that our community possesses, the strength of strangers coming together, and the heroism and determination of our first responders.
Many of you have asked how you can help. For this, we are grateful. In the immediate aftermath of these events, we feel that it is our duty to start a fire relief fund that will be 100% applied to the needs of our impacted counties.
To provide donors with an opportunity to aid those directly impacted by this disaster, we ask that you consider donating to this fund. Every dollar raised in this effort will be donated to help jumpstart the recovery process.
Please see below for ways in which to get involved. In the near future, we will be hosting events in support of these efforts. When this information becomes available, we will post it here.
We will mend. We will heal. We will rise.
