Hi Sonoma County. We’re open today. The fires are still burning but hopefully the worst is in the rearview. Stay safe. To all 1st responders – words can’t express our gratitude.
We’re donating $1 from every pint sold to the “Redwood Credit Union Community Fund” http://www.petaluma360.com/…/751…/north-bay-fire-relief-fund
When we wrap up our ‘dollar pint fund’ we’ll post the receipt.
Please keep in mind that many of our own staff have been deeply affected by this tragedy… like everyone else whose lives have been turned upside down- we’re just going to do our best.
If you’re in a position to do so, please donate your time, energy, stuff, expertise, and of course, money. I’ll post some donation options below from sonomacounty.recovers.com. We encourage you to share and repost, or copy/paste/edit-share if you have other info/donation suggestions to add. There are lots of options- below is just a few of them.
