Collaboration Is Critical
Collaboration is critical to ensuring that people displaced by disasters have the support they need. One agency alone cannot meet all the needs of all disaster victims. The Red Cross is working with emergency officials, local community groups, and businesses to make sure residents receive the right resources and referrals. Recovering from a disaster takes time and the Red Cross will be working alongside partners in the community to deliver aid for months to come. Information Line for the California Wildfires: 855-224-2490.
“Andrew and the culinary team arrived on scene early on and mobilized a large-scale feeding operation for the 800-1200 people on site at the Napa County Fairgrounds in Calistoga,” said Jeff Baumgartner, CEO of the American Red Cross of the California Northwest. “They prepared a wide range of healthy comfort food around the clock. I can truly say that food contributed to peace and comfort during a very difficult time.”. Andrew Wild says “if it was not for the support of the Napa Valley culinary team, none of this would have happened. Everyone worked just as hard and I am happy to be part of the team.
