NorCal fire fund from SLO County

As a community, our hearts break as the devastating fires in Northern California continue to spread leaving far too many dead and several thousand families without homes to go back to once the fires are contained. Thousands of jobs will also be lost because businesses, wineries and attractions are decimated. 

We are asking friends, family, fellow residents, businesses, wineries, resorts and restaurants in our county to support the relief and rebuilding efforts in Northern California. Let's see what we can collectively do as a county.

The donations of this GoFundMe campaign will go directly to the following organizations that have been set up by each community. Their individual boards will determine how the funds are used. We alternatively welcome you to donate to them directly. These include:

Community Foundation Sonoma County, Sonoma County Resilience Fund- 

Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund-

The Community Foundation of Mendocino County, Disaster Fund-

After having come together with other community members to see what we can do collectively, we were hoping to create this campaign anonymously but the platform required us to identify ourselves. As such, Linda Sanpei will be receiving the funds and then will be personally splitting them into thirds and sending them to the respective organziations to use how they best see fit. 

Thank you for helping in any amount you can. 

Linda Sanpei, Cheryl Rowe and Vanessa Igel
