Can you help Sonoma/Napa Contractors Who Lost Tools in Fires?

(Posted by the North Coast Builders Exchange,

Some Contractors lost all their tools in the Wine Country fires.   The North Coast Builders Exchange (NCBE) is coordinating a tool donation drive to get those contractors back to work.

If you can donate tools, please read below about the NCBE TOOL REPLACEMENT PROGRAM

The devastating fires in the North Bay cost thousands of people their homes and we’ve learned recently that many had their livelihood affected as well, particularly NCBE members and others in construction.   We’ve heard from people throughout the building industry that the fires destroyed not only their homes, but their tools as well.

To help,  PLEASE TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO ANSWER THE QUESTIONS BELOW so we can quickly match up builders who need tools with the donated tools we receive.
If you have tools you can donate, please email with these two bits of information:

  1. A description of the tools/equipment you can donate.
  2. Your contact information and address/city PLUS any assistance you can provide to get the tools to Santa Rosa.

 Once we learn exactly what’s available, we at NCBE will get back to you as soon as possible.
Again, please send your reply e-mail to

Thanks for your help.
