Special Fundraiser November 1-30
Noble Rot Raises a Glass to UndocuFund!
The wildfires that besieged multiple communities in Northern California in early October collectively burned over 210,000 acres of land within a week. Over this period, the fires killed at least 42 people, destroyed an estimated 8,400 structures and forced 90,000 people to evacuate from their homes, making it the worst fire disaster in California history. Weeks later, as the fires approach full containment, the long road to recovery and rebuilding begins.
To do our part, in the month of November, Noble Rot will donate $1 per glass for every Napa/Sonoma/Mendocino wine we sell, $2 per flight of Napa/Sonoma/Mendocino, $10 for every bottle of Napa/Sonoma/Mendocino wine we sell for in-house consumption, AND donate the corkage fee ($25) for anyone bringing in a bottle of Napa/Sonoma/Mendocino wine to benefit UndocuFund for Fire Relief. This is a disaster relief fund spearheaded by a coalition of local immigration non-profits to directly assist undocumented victims of the Northern California fires.
One hundred percent of funds will go to victim support.
An estimated 28,000 undocumented immigrants live and work in Sonoma County alone. Unlike other victims of the fires, undocumented immigrants do not qualify for assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), making them one of the most vulnerable populations in need of help for recovery from this disaster.
UndocuFund will provide direct assistance to undocumented victims of the Northern California fires. Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR), a national nonprofit headquartered in Sebastopol, will serve as the fiscal agent for the fund. GCIR and other partners will cover the fund’s administrative costs.
In order to provide direct support to undocumented children, families, and communities affected by the fires in Sonoma County, the UndocuFund will be overseen by a local community advisory committee, including impacted undocumented immigrants, who will review assistance requests and make funding decisions. The Undocufund will provide assistance to pay for such basics as rent and groceries, among other needs.
