San Luis Obispo
In the wake of the devastating fires that burned through large swaths of Northern California in October, The Community Foundation San Luis Obispo County has opened its Disaster Support Fund and waived all administrative fees to provide urgent assistance to organizations working on the ground.
“These challenging times remind us, that as a community, our reach must extend beyond the boundaries of our county to connect with our neighbors affected by these fires,” said Heidi McPherson, CEO of The Community Foundation.

Alpha Omega, Tolosa Winery’s sister winery in Napa Valley, was forced to close briefly during the devastating fires in Northern California. Though the winery was untouched by the fires and no staff members were injured, several were evacuated from their homes.
Alpha Omega has donated items to help others. Ten BBQ units were donated so that Operation BBQ Relief, an organization that provides meals to displaced residents and emergency personnel during disasters, could help those in Napa Valley. Operation BBQ Relief provided more than 30,000 meals to first responders, crews and evacuees in Napa.
Friends of Tolosa Winery may donate to Operation BBQ Relief at https://operationbbqrelief.org. To donate in the name of Alpha Omega, click on the “Gift Honoring Someone,” then type “Alpha Omega” in the “On Behalf of” line.
