Santa Rosa, California-based CannaCraft Inc. is temporarily donating its 12,000-square-foot office space in the city to the American Red Cross for its use as its regional headquarters to coordinate its relief efforts for the Northern California wildfires. The medical cannabis company has also partnered with dispensaries Mercy Wellness and SPARC/Peace in Medicine to donate $40,000 in medical cannabis products to patients affected by the ongoing fires.

The Red Cross has stationed at least 200 volunteers, equipment, and supplies at the office space and is providing around-the-clock relief.

“These fires have affected every member of the CannaCraft family, so we are particularly committed to helping with fire relief efforts as we are able. We are thankful that our headquarters remain intact and operational, making it possible for us to support the American Red Cross by donating much-needed space,” said CannaCraft CEO Dennis Hunter in a press release. “We will continue to evaluate our resources including vehicles, property, facilities, equipment, and product to determine how to best serve our community at this time. We will be providing more information on these efforts as they develop.”

Another cultivator, Kevin Jodrey of Wonderland Nursery, last week said he would bank other growers’ genetics who are at risk of losing crops to the wildfires at his nursery for free as the fires consume cannabis crops in the Emerald Triangle.

Mendocino Generations, a cannabis-growing collective comprised of Mendocino farmers, are also helping fellow cultivators by offering land storage space, equipment, homes, and harvest help before the fires can reach the grows.

Chiah Rodriques, co-founder of Medocino Generations and Paradigm, called this the “most financially challenging and stressful year ever” for the state’s cannabis farmers.

“We are a strong group bonded by community, history, cannabis and love,” Rodriques said in a statement. “Fundraising ideas have begun and many are gathering money and supplies for those who have lost homes or are displaced.”

The group has also set up a GoFundMe page to assist those that have lost their homes and businesses.

As of Oct. 13, more than 20 percent of Sonoma County had been evacuated. Gov. Jerry Brown has declared a state of emergency in eight of the state’s 58 counties. The Redwood Complex Fire has burned more than 30,000 acres.
