Petaluma Nonprofits PROVIDE CRUCIAL SUPPORT
Petaluma has become a safe haven for thousands of evacuees - more than any other city in the county. Our local nonprofits are providing crucial services for victims of the fires. Help them continue their efforts in the weeks and months to come.
Mentor Me served as an emergency shelter for upward of 178 evacuees, including many Spanish-speaking families, and managed an enormous influx of donated supplies and volunteers. They’re now turning their attention to providing financial support to those evacuees and working with local school districts to serve displaced students who will be attending school in Petaluma.
Petaluma Peoples Services Center (PPSC) has partnered with SHARE Sonoma County to solicit, match, and manage home shares for individuals and families displaced by the fires. They are seeking homeowners and renters with an extra bedroom, garage space, couch or second dwelling unit who are willing to offer short-term housing for our fire victims. Placements are not limited to Sonoma or Napa counties. If you are in need of housing or want to provide housing, please contact SHAREFire@petalumapeople.org or call 707.765.8488 and ask for SHAREFire, ext. 126.
PPSC is also providing transportation to fire victims through their iRide volunteer driver program to those without transportation, and distributing fresh food through their Petaluma Bounty farm to those that have lost food bank services. They are seeking volunteers to help provide this safety net.
Rebuilding Together is currently collecting and distributing supplies and will mobilize volunteers and donations of building materials to help people repair and rebuild their homes.
Help Petaluma Community Foundation support the fire relief and recovery efforts of our local Petaluma nonprofits by donating to PCF's Fire Response Fund.
Community Foundation of Sonoma County has launched the Sonoma County Resilience Fund to support the medium- to long-term needs of nonprofit organizations providing direct services to fire victims in our greater Sonoma County community.
