August 24    2:00-4:00

Pull up to the main entrance.  To reduce contact, please remain in your car, and we will come out to you and place the bagged items in your trunk.  If you need particular items, please let us know at that time.

If you are located in Sonoma County and cannot make it to Napa, please email us at services@nbrc.net with “PPE Request” as a subject line, include specific information about what you need, and we will do our best to make arrangements.
