Lynx Donates $25,000 To Support Napa Fire Victims
NAPA, CA, October 8, 2020 – A campaign created by Lynx FBO Network (Lynx) has raised approximately $15,000 to support fire relief efforts in Napa County. Proceeds will be donated to the Napa Valley Community Foundation (NVCF). This is in addition to a $10,000 contribution Lynx made to the Foundation for fire relief last month.
Tyson Goetz, President of Lynx, initiated the campaign which committed $0.02 per gallon from all eight of Lynx’s FBO locations.
“Investment in communities we serve is an important part of Lynx’s philosophy. We are deeply saddened by the devastating wildfires that have destroyed homes and businesses throughout Napa County and our neighboring communities,” said Carrie Campbell, General Manager of Lynx Network in Napa. “We applaud the work of the Napa Valley Community Foundation and are pleased to support their efforts, which will provide much needed support to residents impacted by the fire.”
Gift cards are being donated to evacuees and emergency relief services like temporary shelter, meals, counseling and assistance in navigating insurance claims are being provided now to those affected by the fire., In the weeks ahead, contributions will also be used to provide direct financial assistance to income-qualified homeowners and renters whose primary residences were damaged or destroyed by the LNU Lightning Complex Fires and Glass Fire.
"We are tremendously grateful to Lynx for their generosity and for their commitment to the people of Napa Valley at a really challenging time,” said NVCF President Terence Mulligan. “Their support is -- in a word -- uplifting.”
Lynx will be extending its $0.02 per gallon commitment through the month of October from its Napa location, as part of its ongoing commitment to the Foundation in support of its fire relief efforts.
