Devastating Wine Country Fires
The fire is still raging throughout the wine country. Today’s statistics on the toll that the fire has taken are mind numbing.
17 deaths from fires throughout Northern California
3,000 ruined homes and businesses
183 people still reported missing in Sonoma
17 active wildfires statewide have burned 115,000 acres.
As of right now, the fierce blazes continue to surge.
Stealing from todays SF Chronicle’s headline the Disaster is Relentless.
Sitting in my safe home in San Francisco, across the Bay, I’ve been thinking of ways that I can help. I saw this list that a friend just posted, which I want to share with you.
Ways to support the affected communities:
You can donate directly to the Red Cross by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS or you can donate $10 immediately by texting REDCROSS to 90999.
Evacuation zones are accepting cash donations, baby food, blankets, toilet paper and other supplies. The full list is here.
Airbnb is allowing people to open their homes for those in need.
Love on Haight is accepting clothing donations.
My heart and prayers go out to all those that have been affected by the fire.
