North Bay Disaster Relief Update


Grant Report from S.A.F.E.R.

fire damageIn another move to help horse and livestock owners displaced or affected by the devastating North Bay Fires, the Woodside Community Foundation recently made a $3,000 grant to Sonoma Action for Equine Rescue. On behalf of WCF, S.A.F.E.R. distributed a total of ten $300-vouchers to Tractor Supply so that people returning to their properties could begin the process of rebuilding. In most cases, these vouchers were used to help buy new fencing for people who lost everything in the fires.

Teresa Crocker, DVM, a beloved horse vet who escaped with nothing but her animals and her husband lost everything including a neighbor she loved. She spent the month following the fire treating horses injured in the Tubbs Fire. She used the voucher for several pipe panels.

JamieJamie Ginochios, a popular farrier lost everything, including his truck and tools, in the Redwood Valley Fire. While his truck was insured, his tools were not. He used his voucher to purchase new farrier tools and supplies.

Stay tuned for more updates both on additional assistance to horse and livestock owners in the aftermath of the North Bay Fires, and in the more recent Southern California Fires. The Woodside Community Foundation is committed to helping fellow equestrians, ranchers and farmers affected by the recent devastating fires in California.
