We are heartbroken and shocked by the enormity of the devastation from the fires in Northern California wine country. Many of our friends, neighbors, and wine and hospitality partners have been terribly affected. These communities will need much help in the coming days, weeks, and months to recover and rebuild. Here are some ways you can help.
donate food + supplies
redwood empire food bank
3990 Brickway Blvd., Santa Rosa
(Please note, the off-ramp at Airport Blvd. is currently closed in both directions. Please take the Shiloh Road exit heading west, take a left on Skylane Blvd., until you meet Airport Blvd. again)
From REFB: Bring food donations to the REFB right now. We are in dire need of ready-to-eat, non-perishable foods that we can provide to the evacuation centers immediately. These foods should be easy to open and easy to eat - many shelters do not have kitchens for heating and preparing food. Please do not bring glass containers."
