The mission of the Sonoma County Grape Growers Foundation is for Sonoma County grape growers to be agriculture leaders in social sustainability through partnerships and programs that support the skilled agricultural workforce and their families who sustain farming in Sonoma County.
The Sonoma County Grape Growers Foundation convenes and collaborates with community-based organizations and government agencies to identify resources, leverage support and design programs that improve the lives and support of local agricultural employees and their families.
DONATE TO AGRICULTURAL EMPLOYEES IMPACTED BY WILDFIRE
The October wildfires that began in Sonoma County on October 8th left more than 100,000 residents county-wide displaced from their homes—many of whom permanently lost those homes. At final count, 5,100 homes across Sonoma County were destroyed, and of that total, 5% of all Santa Rosa homes were lost.
AGRICULTURAL EMPLOYEES IMPACTED BY FIRE RECEIVE HOUSING SUPPORT
More than 150 agricultural workers and their families from Sonoma County who were displaced by the fires in October will begin receiving a much needed helping hand today from a housing recovery fund recently established by the Sonoma County Grape Growers Foundation and the Sonoma County Farm Bureau.
