The North Bay Fires

You are here

As I write, the North Bay Fires are still raging in Sonoma and Napa Counties. I know that some of our member associations have been affected, as well as numerous homes, businesses, and lives. The loss is overwhelming, and my heart goes out to everyone in the area.

If you are in a position to help, please consider making a donation to the Red Cross – they are assisting in several shelters in the area.

And if you would like to focus on local organizations, the Santa Rosa Press Democrat lists other ways that you can help:

I know that the HOA communities impacted by the fires will need help. And as the smoke clears, we are working on a list of resources as well as local gatherings to connect boards to critical recovery information and, I hope, to each other: no one should go through this alone.

Losing your home is devastating. But losing your home while being responsible for your neighbors’ homes is an incredible burden. I know that ECHO will do what it can to help. 

If you or someone you know lives in an HOA that has been affected and has a specific need for information or guidance, please let us know:

I wish safety, comfort, and a speedy recovery to everyone in the North Bay.
