Wine Country Real Estate Professionals Team Up to Donate $65,000 in Gratitude

San Francisco, CA November 23, 2020 Heading into the holidays with memories still fresh from this year’s Northern California wildfires, real estate professionals from Compass are making the season a better one for 17 Wine Country nonprofit organizations.

Already hard hit by the COVID pandemic, nonprofits across the Napa and Sonoma Counties are seeing needs greater than ever to support their communities dealing with the devastation of the fires. Compass real estate professionals teamed up to respond to these agencies that are providing a range of services for Wine Country residents from mental health treatment for children badly impacted by the fires, to food banks, animal shelters and volunteer fire departments.

“These are our neighbors and friends who are suffering from these overwhelming losses due to the fires,” says Mark A. McLaughlin, President of Compass California. “We need to be there to help in every way we can, especially through this year’s holiday season.”

The agencies receiving funds from the Compass team’s donations include:
– Cappell Valley Volunteer Fire Department
– Cloverdale Citrus Fair
– Corazon Healdsburg
– Deer Park Volunteer Fire Department
– First Responders Resiliency
– Geyserville Volunteer Firefighter Association Humane Society
– Napa Community Animal Response Team North Bay Animal Services
– Petaluma People Services
– Redwood Empire Food Bank
– Sonoma CART
– Sonoma County Resiliency Fund
– Boys and Girls Club of St. Helena & Calistoga UpValley Family Center

The community organizations receiving this funding were selected by the real estate professionals, employees and leadership from Compass who live in and serve their clients in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys.
