Join the CCOF Foundation for Thank You Thursday at Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing on March 15

Santa Cruz, California is a unique place. Nestled between redwood trees and a vast ocean coastline, those who have the privilege to live and work in Santa Cruz cherish its community. Although technically a city, Santa Cruz has a small-town vibe: local businessowners create lasting relationships with their patrons and give back wherever possible. One such local business, Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing (SCM Brew), likes to give back with an event called Thank You Thursday.

Northern California Fire Relief Efforts Update

CCOF is terribly saddened by the extensive and profound ways in which thousands of people have been affected by the fires. We are also inspired by the overwhelming compassion, community effort, and solidarity in the face of such adversity.  While we are working one-on-one with many affected CCOF clients—some of whom are experiencing severe to total losses—our hope for recovery continues to strengthen as we are also getting an incredible wave of people who are looking to help their fellow growers, producers, and ranchers.
