The Rebuild Wine Country fund was started by a group of local wine industry professionals as they watched their families, friends and colleagues grieve losses that often are only seen as headlines in the news. Yet the tragedy was at home, in their vineyards, wineries and neighborhoods. There have been many news reports of vineyards, wineries and estates burning, but more urgent is the fact that homes have been destroyed of the people who support the community around those properties. From the vineyard and winery, to the supermarket and hospital, there is a desperate need for funding to repair and rebuild homes of the people making wine country go ‘round. Every dollar given will be put to, specifically, to rebuilding the the homes of those people.
This is a call to action; it is your opportunity to help those in need during a time when it is difficult to know exactly how to help. Thank you so much for your support of our beloved extended wine country community!
“Habitat for Humanity of Sonoma County's partnership with Rebuild Wine Country is focused on rebuilding and repairing homes for renters who have lost their home, as well as new housing for homeowners who have been affected by these fires.
