With less than a month since the earthquake hit Napa Valley with devastating effect, neighborly love is being expressed. Napa Valley Vintners is a nonprofit trade association that has announced their plans to donate $ 10 million dollars to help with relief efforts to those in the Napa Valley Community. The money will create the Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund that will help local residents and businesses impacted by the earthquake last month.

While Napa Valley Vintners is establishing the fund, they are hoping other organizations and individuals will step up to help as well.  The damage from the earthquake is estimated to cost up to 4 billion dollars.  The fund will help local businesses and community members rebuild by providing one-time immediate and short term assistance for things like temporary housing; basic needs (food, water, etc.); medical care and counseling; also repairs for immediate safety concerns.

The NVV will partner with  Napa Valley Community Foundation (NVCF), a public charity with significant experience in responding to communities in crisis. The Napa Valley Community Foundation will help to administer the disaster relief fund. The NVV and NVCF will  work closely with other non-profit organizations and government entities to fulfill requests for support from Napa County residents and business owners.

You can help by making a donation here and spread the word on social media with #NapaStrong.
