131,000 acres burned (and counting).
A little over 5 percent contained.
The Valley and Butte wildfires in California are wrecking havoc on thousands of lives, and are taking a serious toll on Lake County wine country in particular.
You can help out by visiting LoveLakeCounty.org, a list of donation centers of all stripes and types, which are focused on assisting those impacted by the wildfires. It’s a great and easily-navigated aggregation of what items are most needed, and where.
The list is compiled on a volunteer basis, and as of the time of this writing, not all of the donation centers on the list have been vested. As always, proceed generously, but with caution (I figured that you folks are smart enough to navigate the small risk there).
If you love California wine, please consider donating in whatever way that you can.
