Vista, CA—Dr. Bronner’s, Organic Valley, and GrassRoots Alliance are working through the Grassroots Aid Partnership (GAP) to deliver food, toiletries, and aid to those affected by the Camp Fire in Northern California, according to a press release made by Dr. Bronner’s yesterday.
GAP is partnering with the North State Food Bank in Oroville, CA, to distribute aid from Organic Valley and Dr. Bronner’s.
The two companies are donating organic food and organic soap and toiletries, respectively, and Dr. Bronner’s has sent staff to the area to help distribute items.
“Dr. Bronner’s is answering the call to action, by providing soap and basic toiletries to those who have lost their homes and been displaced by the Camp Fire,” said David Bronner, cosmic engagement officer of Dr. Bronner’s. “We stand in solidarity with our fellow Californians, as we join our community to support and take care of one another during this crisis. We will continue to support Grassroots Aid Partnership for on-the-ground relief efforts, and work towards nurturing more responsible, regenerative organic farming models that at global scale can sequester atmospheric carbon in soil and mitigate the worst effects of climate change.”
George Siemon, CEO and a founding farmer of Organic Valley, said: “Organic Valley has been on the front line in responding with in-kind products, equipment, volunteers, and financial support through many disasters over the years. We are humbled to offer support to the many victims and volunteers that are dealing with the vast devastation in California.”
Dr. Bronner’s and Organic Valley are founding partners of GAP, a collective of conscious companies that join forces to provide food and other basic necessities freely to communities that are devastated by hurricanes, wild fires, and other natural disasters.
