As multiple wildfires ravage Napa & Sonoma counties, we are all wondering how we can help those who've been affected.

As the wildfires are not yet fully contained, information is changing rapidly. Please check here for the latest updates.


With an estimated 20,000 people being evacuated because of the fires burning in the Wine Country and Northern California, many are asking how they can help.

Shelters in Sonoma and Napa Counties are filling up, which means volunteers are needed to serve food, set up, clean up, and even help with evacuated animals.

The City of Santa Rosa and the Sonoma Community Center are among the places looking for volunteers, along with the American Red Cross.
