The WineShine Half Marathon is proud to support two local charities: The Napa Valley Farmworker Foundation and Napa Firewise.
WineShine is Committed to Giving Back to the Community
The Napa Valley Farmworker Foundation’s mission is to support and promote Napa Valley’s vineyard workers through education and professional development. To date, the Foundation has been able to serve over 22,000 vineyard workers and their families, provided more than 3,000 hours of education and has been able to expand its English Literacy Program.
The Napa Communities Firewise Foundation (NCFF) is a county-wide nonprofit organization that has been operating for 16 years. NCFF’s mission is to reduce the risk and impacts of wildfires through fire fuel reduction and community education in Napa County. They achieve this through Fire Safe Councils, through local, state and federal grants and by educating the community on such topics as defensible space, home hardening, and fire preparedness.
Their mission is to empower the residents and businesses of Napa County with the information, knowledge, and support they need to mitigate the effects of, and to survive wildland fire.
