Our friends Mark and Gary from Out in the Vineyard have created a masterful list of ways to help California from the very much still-happening wildfires engulfing the area.
Redwood Credit Union (RCU), in partnership with RCU Community Fund, The Press Democrat, and Senator Mike McGuire, is now accepting financial donations to aid relief efforts and assist victims of the 2017 North Bay fires. 100% of your donations will go directly to support those affected by the fires.
Community Foundation Sonoma County has launched the Sonoma County Resilience Fund to address the mid to long-term needs of our community. While we cannot yet predict what the greatest needs will be, in other communities recovery efforts have included basic needs as well as longer term economic, health and social supports. Examples have included support for renters, case management services, animal welfare and capacity-building for nonprofits taking on new or expanded roles in disaster relief.

Really. By purchasing your favorite wines in both grocery stores and restaurants you are directly generating funds that will help our winemakers and vintners rebuild their businesses and continue to employ those who work in vineyards, tasting rooms, hotels and restaurants, to rebuild their lives in wine country, those who have whole heartedly supported our LGBTQ community.
Out at the Vineyard is also working on organizing a fundraiser that will be taking place November 5 in San Francisco, stay tuned for info on that!
