We invite you to watch and share this important message from City of Sonoma Mayor Logan Harvey and local non-profit leaders with information about food and financial support for Sonoma Valley residents in need due to the devastating economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. As the need for assistance has increased, so has the need for volunteers and donations. Whether you or someone you know need assistance, or if you are able to help, we hope this message finds you well and provides you with helpful information.
In this video, you will hear directly from Mayor Harvey and several of our community’s non-profit leaders working every day to bring food and financial assistance to those in need. Mayor Harvey is joined by David Goodman, CEO of the Redwood Empire Food Bank; Sandy Piotter, Executive Director of Friends in Sonoma Helping (FISH); Priscilla Call Essert, Executive Director of the Vintage House; Angie Sanchez, Community Engagement Manager at La Luz; and Katherine King, Executive Director of Sonoma Overnight Support/The Haven.
