The fires in the North Bay are absolutely heartbreaking, and communities are rallying to put the pieces back together for victims. That includes our community of businesses. There are a number of ways you can support fire relief efforts, even if it’s just making sure any shopping you’re doing has an additional impact.
In the coming months, wineries, farmers, small businesses and makers in the North Bay are going to need all of us to reaffirm our commitment to supporting the local economy— and we know that Bay Area residents will show up, just as they are now. Here’s how Bay Area Made members are helping, and we will continue to update this list.
