We are deeply saddened by the tragic events that happened in California. We address our full support to the people touched by the fires.
As a member of the wine family, Wine-Source will help the devastated wineries of Napa Valley, for each case bought on website, $10 will directly go to the Disaster Relief Fund of the Napa Valley Community Foundation (NVCF).
The NVCF will be coordinating with the Napa Valley Community Organizations Active in Disaster, a coalition that the foundation put together to help nonprofits efficiently communicate and act together in an emergency. The groups will also work with local governments and other leaders in the nonprofit sector, both to assess urgent needs and put in place a plan for longer-term recovery. Donations to the fund can be made at NapaValleyCF.org.
In response to several major Napa County fires that started burning the night of October 8th and have displaced thousands of area residents thus far, Napa Valley Community Foundation (NVCF) has mobilized its Disaster Relief Fund.
The Governor declared a state of emergency for the fires in Napa County on October 9 and the federal government declared it a major disaster on October 10th.
The Fund was established in response to the South Napa Earthquake of 2014 with a $10 million lead gift from Napa Valley Vintners, and ultimately helped provide services to more than 12,000 earthquake victims, and cash aid to 1,400 of those hardest-hit by the last declared disaster in the region.
The foundation will also be distributing grants to local charities who are responding to the ongoing fires. This is in continuing with the work that the NVCF already does, connecting donors to worthwhile charities and supporting projects that help the Napa County community as a whole.
