Fire Relief Napa & Sonoma Counties

$57,463 of $75,000 goal

Raised by 590 people in 22 months
Napa and Sonoma counties in Northern California underwent a series of unprecedented fires that started October 8 and as of October 22nd are still not 100% contained.  Close to 200,000 acres have been burned and there are 42 confirmed deaths and close to 9,000 structures were destroyed.   Many, many people remain affected either through loss of homes, places of work and/or health related issues. 

Charles Communications Associates, based in San Francisco, CA, has worked with wineries in California closely for over 30 years and for this effort, worked together with several other wine industry professionals in the first two weeks to identify needs for evacuees including non perishable foods, clothing, sleeping bags, masks, water, and gift cards for displaced families.     In the first two weeks we distributed $11,000 worth of goods. Thanks to your generosity,  the campaign has reached a level of $54,000 and we have been speaking with several underserved community charities including health clinics to allocate funding to those most in need.  We know the needs will evolve in the coming months and year and we as a team of doers, want to ensure these funds go to those most overlooked and in need.   We will continue to keep you apprised weekly.

Charles Communications Associates used funds to pay for goods for the shelter drives and will then be allocating remaining monies to deserving charitable causes. 

We hope you can help and we appreciate those of you who have supported this campaign.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone. We've been quietly working behind the scenes researching deserving groups for the remaining funds from our Fire Relief campaign. It was all about you. Many hearts making it happen. Pleased to announce that our funds were matched by the ONEHOPE Foundation making our overall fund $84,000 which is astonishing for a small but mighty group. Many thanks to all and much love to you.
Here's more detail on the funding. http://bit.ly/2sqYsGE Hugs, Kimberly

It's been a few busy weeks since our last post. As Thanksgiving approaches we'll have more updates for you but in the meantime, I was up in Santa Rosa last week to visit the most devastated neighborhood, Coffey Park where homes, mobile homes, boats lay in ruins. The only structures remaining were chimneys, grills and mailboxes. It was tough to see and I said lots of prayers as I drove through. The work continues.

Happy Friday everyone! Thank you to each and every one of you for your contributions at every level. We produced a video of our recent Napa efforts and this week began the culling process of finding organizations in both counties with financial needs. We remain focused on overlooked/underserved individuals and families who are vital to these communities and will share our updates in the weeks to come. This campaign is still planning on remaining viable in the coming months so please encourage friends to support. Thank you to the kind contribution of time and editing of Susan Quinn of Cliclounge.com for the great video.

Good morning, today's update is a video of the Sonoma County supply delivery we did on the 12th. Today, we dropped off more masks to the Sonoma Valley Vintners and are reviewing several organizations who service vineyard workers and community needs for further support. Many thanks to the team including Tia Butts, Kenrick Mercado, Alex Fondren, Beck Hopkins and Katie Calhoun among many others.
