How can I help support those affected by the wildfires in Northern California?

Friends, colleagues, and dozens of Winc members in the North Bay area have been deeply affected by the recent, relentless wildfires, which firefighters are still working around the clock to contain. 
 
We are still in shock over the immense destruction that has occurred, and our hearts go out to those who have lost loved ones, homes, and businesses, so we wanted to provide some ways to support those in need:
 
Sonoma County Resilience Fund - The Community Foundation Sonoma County launched this fund to address the mid to long-term needs of the community in light of the firestorm currently ravaging the country. 
 
Napa Valley Community Foundation - This foundation supports those affected by the recent fires in Napa County.
 
Community Foundation of Mendocino County - This fund was created by the Community Foundation’s Board of Directors to provide disaster relief and recovery services in the aftermath of a natural disaster.
 
If you live locally:
 
Airbnb - They've launched an Open Homes program for those seeking shelter free-of-charge at a residence outside of but near the affected area. The company is also looking for those willing to volunteer space at their local home for evacuees.
 
You can also help by donating to local animal shelters, which are helping people keep their pets safe. Humane Society of Sonoma County: sonomahumane.org. Humane Society of Napa County: napahumane.org. and Yuba-Sutter SPCA: yubasutterspca.org.
 
Thank you for your support, 
Winc
