Yuba employees donate a day's wages to fire relief agencies

Published October 26, 2017

COTATI, Calif. (BRAIN) — Employees at Yuba Bikes are donating one day's worth of wages to the North Bay Fire Relief Fund and the company is matching the donations.

The Fund is supporting the immediate needs of community members affected by the North Bay fires, including fire victims in Sonoma, Napa, Mendocino and Lake Counties who have lost homes. The fund also assists first responders who lost homes while fighting fires and kids and schools in the four counties affected by the fires.

Yuba is located in Cotati just outside Santa Rosa. Yuba staff and families are in the process of returning to homes and assessing any damage. The Yuba Bikes headquarters and warehouse both escaped evacuation and did not suffer any structural damage. However, shipping to and from the Yuba warehouse was delayed due to UPS delivery service being halted. 

"This area where we all call home was tragically affected by the fires that raged through Sonoma County," said Benjamin Sarrazin, the founder of Yuba Bikes. "This is the least we can do to help our community start to recover and rebuild what was lost."

Yuba Bikes is working with the Redwood Credit Union North Bay Fire Relief, which is accepting donations online. Donations made can be directed toward any of the four counties affected by the fires. For more information on how to donate, visit
