    United Way of the Wine Country and United Way Bay Area have formed an unprecedented partnership to assist the residents and community agencies in Sonoma, Napa, Solano, Lake, and Mendocino counties through the United Ways’ Northern California Wildfire Relief and Recovery Fund. This fund will provide immediate and long-term recovery assistance to North Bay residents affected by the wildfires that have spread throughout the region. 100% of your gift will go directly to relief and recovery efforts. United Way Bay Area will absorb all administrative costs for handling and processing donations.

    We are uniting communities throughout the Bay Area to assist their neighbors in need after 31 people have been killed, more than 3,500 homes and structures have been destroyed, and roughly 191,000 acres of land has been burned (an area almost the size of New York City) since the wildfires began Sunday, October 8.
    Relief efforts include providing basic needs services to individuals and assisting the non-profit agencies that serve the most vulnerable residents in our communities. Long-term recovery support may include food and rent assistance to help people who have lost employment, case management services, and mental health counseling.
    United Ways are trusted organizations with a long track record of raising funds and making grants to support our communities. Our long-standing relationships with non-profit community organizations, business leaders, foundations, and elected officials allow us to provide timely resources where they are most needed in this disaster response and long-term recovery effort.
