How to help those affected by the Wine Country Fires



We are periodically adding new information to this page, so be sure to check back here for updates.

What to do?


Monetary donations:

Donating directly to groups on the ground, or to the victims via gift cards are the top priority, and if this is something you can do, we have listed groups on the bottom of this post and, (this just in) an anonymous donor will match up to $10K on our Make it Better Red Cross funding account.


Volunteer Info:

For volunteering opportunities in various towns as well as a detailed list of donation needs throughout Marin, Napa and Sonoma counties, updated fire maps and school closure information - in other words, for anything you need to know about helping or getting help, please click on this Google Doc.


Animals

Free Pet Boarding:

Marin Humane was crucial in helping during the week of the fires, and they could still use your help, check here for updates: facebook.com/marinhumane or marinhumane.org/northbayfires

Foster, adopt, volunteer with the Milo Foundation milofoundation.org


Update: Stories

Marin Magazine contributor Kirsten Jones Neff wrote about her experience during the disaster. 

She also found that one of the best ways you can help Napa and Sonoma is by visiting! Make sure to support the local businesses in their time of need.


Monetary Donations (continued):

  • North Bay Fire Relief (RCU account)
