Sierra Nevada Brewing and its surrounding community are far from safe right now. The fires rage on and everyone in that part of the world is living day to day, counting blessing for what has been spared and mourning the loss of property and life, which has thus far been tragic and enormous. And it continues.
There are immediate needs and Sierra Nevada is doing what it can to deal with those, but the company has also set up a relief fund to help with long-term relief. They’ve seeded the fund with $100,000 and are asking the rest of us to contribute. Follow this link to contribute (scroll down the list to find and select Sierra Nevada Brewery).
Here’s the company’s statement about the fire and the fund
Sierra Nevada Camp Fire Relief Fund
Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. establishes Camp Fire Relief Fund
As many of you are aware, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. and our surrounding communities are in the midst of dealing with the still-active Camp Fire. Even though we are all living moment to moment trying to figure out who is safe and if our homes have been spared, the beauty of the human spirit still shines through.
We have been flooded by offers of support, from a simple “I am here” to generous offerings of financial and physical support. There are many opportunities—both immediate and long-term—to help those affected.
For immediate support, there are many nonprofit and government agencies whose sole purpose is to help those experiencing disaster. Rather than duplicate those efforts, we will instead focus on connecting those groups with people who need help.
For long-term support, we have set up a Sierra Nevada Camp Fire Relief Fund, supported through the Golden Valley Bank Community Foundation. The brewery is seeding this fund with an initial $100,000 to get started. Once the fire is out, we will distribute all donated money to partner organizations that are dedicated to rebuilding and supporting the communities that have been affected.
If you would like to support this long-term effort, you can follow this link, select “Sierra Nevada Brewery,” and follow the instructions thereafter. Checks can be made payable to “GVBCF – Sierra Nevada” and either dropped off at Golden Valley Bank or mailed to 190 Cohasset Road, Chico, CA 95926.
We appreciate the tremendous amount of support and compassion shown from folks around the world. With the brave men and women risking their lives fighting this fire and the outpouring of support from communities near and far, we know we are on a path to healing and rebuilding.
