Oct. 23, 2015 — Rabobank is donating $25,000 to #LakeCountyRising to buoy local relief efforts following the destructive Valley Fire, according to the Record-Bee.
“Working with clients in Lake County, we have witnessed the human toll of this fire firsthand,” said Charles Day, area manager for Rabobank’s Food & Agribusiness Division on the North Coast. “The incredible scale of the damage and hardship it has caused prompted Rabobank to do what we could to aid the relief effort.”
#LakeCounty Rising is a fundraising effort to support community rebuilding in the areas ravaged by the Valley Fire with a focuse on livelihood, housing and community needs. The effort was initiated by three Lake County organizations: Lake County Winegrape Commission, Lake County Winery Association and Lake County Wine Alliance, a 501©(3) non-profit organization that will manage the collection and distribution of tax deductible donations.
