The fires have been largely contained and we are so thankful to all the first responders from near and far who have helped turn this around. We have all seen an outpouring of generosity from our communities. At this point, it looks like the shelters have been overwhelmed with in-kind donations (food, clothing, etc) and the real need now is money. If you want to make donations to shelters, the request is $25 gift cards with a cash value so they can provide immediate assistance to those in need.
Aside from immediate help, many people will need mid term and long term assistance. Some homeowners are finding themselves under-insured, many renters were not insured at all, and our undocumented neighbors may not be able to get assistance from agencies like FEMA. Many people have not been able to work and some have permanently lost their place of employment.
There are several organizations helping people in these situations and I am listing a few here. Consider making recurring monthly donations if you can. This crisis is bound to go on for a long time. If you know other good organizations, feel free to add them in the comments section.
And don’t forget the animals!
There is a new food delivery service in town called Foodie Racer. They will deliver from any Petaluma restaurant to people in Petaluma on a motorcycle.
Here is how it works:
You call the restaurant to place your order and tell them Foodie Racer will pick it up. Foodie Racer picks it up and delivers to you. You pay them the cost of the food plus $11.
Check out their website and facebook page or call/ text them at (949) 632-1438
