Edit: This link leads to the most comprehensive collection of ways to help that I’ve seen. Give it a look, please.

Santa Rosa was where my grandparents lived. It’s where I watched Barry Bonds twirl against Chan Ho Park. It’s where my family and I were considering living when we started looking for a home. It’s a beautiful part of the Bay Area, and I can’t get over the pictures and videos of what has happened there.

The homepage of the Santa Rosa Press-Democrat is ... it’s incomprehensibly awful right now. Words fail.

Here’s how you can help. I’m getting a lot of this information from SF Gate and the Sacramento Bee, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to put this up here, too. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

If you have suggestions for what to include here, please let me know in the comments. Good luck, and stay safe.
