A Few More Ways You Can Help Our Neighbors to the North

By Joe Starkey ·

As you well know, some pretty terrible stuff is happening up north. We wish our very best to those affected by this disaster and hope you and your loved ones stay safe and out of harm's way. 

In the meantime, here are a few resources to help those in need, including plenty of local options where your otherwise routine outings will be contributing to the cause. 

And away we go...

Sonoma County Resilience Fund
American Red Cross
Mendocino County Disaster Fund

Now through the next couple of months, the brewery and arcade will be donating $1 from each Can of the Week to fire relief efforts.

The local beer company is accepting donations at their brewery, as they will be using their trucks to head north. Oct 16, 6am-8pm

Several area restaurants are donating their spaces and supplies to make food for evacuees. Sign up on the website to volunteer.

Concert at Bottom of the Hill
Vice Reine, the opener for tonight's concert, will be donating their portion of door and merch sales to the fire relief effort, and they'll be accepting gift card donations for evacuees at their merch table. Oct 16, 8:30pm-1am, $10

The SF mainstay will be doing various things throughout the coming weeks to help raise money for the affected areas. Already, they've donated all proceeds from a night's sales of North Bay-raised squab, with varied, similar promotions to follow.

They'll be hosting two events which will include rare wine auctions full of wines provided from collectors, somms and distributors. All proceeds will go to the Napa Valley Community Foundation.

Chefsgiving
100 restaurants, delis and bakeries will be donating $100 per guest/item to relief efforts. The ways they do so can range from special menus (a la Restaurant Week) to ticketed events to a portion of sales of a certain item. The website will launch later this week with new additions, so check in often. Nov 13-19
