Dear Friends,

So many of you have reached out to us with your thoughts, prayers, and even your own stories of survival. The outpouring of goodwill and well wishes is very appreciated in what's been one of the most challenging weeks our broader organization has ever faced.

There are also a great number of you asking how you can help.

As previously mentioned, a number of our employees and wine family located in Santa Rosa have lost everything. It became quickly apparent that dry goods and/or material goods are not helpful right now. ​Those who ​have​ lost everything have​ nowhere to store anything at this time, but when they do, they will need the financial support to buy basic goods that make a home.

The single best way to support our employees and wine family​ who have lost everything is to support their basic living needs. As such we have set up a GoFundMe to raise funds to purchase gift cards that can be used immediately​ and will be distributed equally to our employees who lost their homes​​. We believe this type of contribution will ​provide a semblance of normalcy and hope​.

​While we have put together this way to help our affected employees, you can also donate to the larger cause. Anything and everything makes a difference. Here are the funds and charities we support.

Thank you again for your concern, friendship and support.

From all of us at Cameron Hughes Wine
