Hello Friends of Napa Vision 2050,

Thank you to all of our friends for the tremendous response and outreach we have received this week amidst the wildfires ravaging our area. We are grateful to the countless emergency responders who are here and for their tireless efforts to protect our community. We send all of our prayers and well wishes out to those in our community who are suffering great loss, and we take heart in the generous spirit of this caring community we are a part of.

We have learned of an immediate need, that we bring to your attention.

Hundreds of Napa County’s large animals — horses, cattle, goats —have been evacuated to the Solano County Fairgrounds in Vallejo.  Their needs are great.
