Nonprofit has served 8,414 meals to evacuees since the fire began one week ago
The Salvation Army continues to feed Kincade Fire evacuees in Napa, San Rafael and Petaluma. Multiple crews have been working nonstop to serve 8,414 meals in just a few days at four evacuation shelters.
In addition, because tens of thousands in Sonoma County have been without power for days, The Salvation Army is partnering with other local nonprofits today to help restock empty refrigerators.
At time of release, CAL FIRE reported the Kincade Fire at more than 76,000 acres and 60 percent containment. The agency reported at least 266 structures have been destroyed and 47 others damaged, while more than 5,000 fire personnel are working to keep this fire from spreading into heavily populated areas.
As one of the nation’s major emergency relief organizations, The Salvation Army is on the ground before, during and after a disaster strikes. When the Kincade Fire became a threat, we were ready to respond quickly and efficiently.
The Salvation Army has activated disaster service teams from Napa (including those from the Napa Valley Culinary Training Academy), Oroville, Petaluma, Roseville, San Rafael and Santa Rosa, plus volunteers, who are serving meals to thousands of evacuees at the locations listed below. They will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner for as long as there is a need.
We are serving at these evacuation shelters, until further notice, at 8 a.m., 12 p.m., and 5:30 p.m.:
