The Valley Fire burning in Lake & Napa County prompted evacuation of more than 17,000 people.
Many organizations have pulled together to help house, feed and provide for evacuees. Mandatory evacuations are in place and may be for some time… First responders are critical.
#SonomaChat, an online social community based in Sonoma County, California & founder Amy Lieberfarb, would like to help with humanitarian aid efforts by raising money with a LIVE twitter conversation this Wednesday, Sept 16, 2015 from 5:00-6:30pmPST.
Instead of our regular #SonomaChat Conversation each Wednesday with our guest host, we will dedicate our chat and time and efforts to the Theme:
Help our Sonoma County Neighbors!
Donate today HERE to support the relief efforts for the victims of the Lake County area fires.
Redwood Credit Union and The Press Democrat have invited the public to join them in helping their neighbors. Lake County officials are still gathering information to determine the full extent of damage from the multiple blazes and the number of displaced residents.
A relief fund for the victims of the Lake County fires has been set up by Redwood Credit Union and 100 percent of your donation will go to first responders in Lake County to aid them in providing ongoing support for the families whose lives have been disrupted by this major fire.
SonomaChat and/or Amy Lieberfarb has no relation or business relationship to RCU but would like to join the public in raising funds using her best platform avavilable… Wednesday night SonomaChat. 100% of your donation will go to the:
Lake County Fire Relief Fund, established by RCU, The Press Democrat & Senator Mike McGuire.
