Hi we are seven months pregnant we were looking for an apartment for 6 months. We finally found an apartment, the landlady gave it to us she was very kind and very nice. I dropped off Rachel to work that morning and I got some movers to help me. After I got done moving a few truck loads I went and picked up Rachel from work. We came back I helped her upstairs on the third floor. I went to go look for parking , you know how parking is in the sunset? I came back upstairs she noticed some smoke coming from the unit downstairs. We thought it’s a new apartment weird cooking or something. I proceeded to go downstairs and saw flames coming from the apartment below. I ran to the apartment banging and knocking. I opened the door and grabbed some fire extinguishers it wasn’t helping. Rachel was knocking on every door to get people to safety. We evacuated the building alerted everyone and called the fire department. Everyone was safe; we then went to the hospital. When we were finally able to go back inside that night to retrieve our belongings everything we owned was destroyed in the fire. All our baby stuff and things passed down from friends and family that’s irreplaceable. We just moved in and we have lost everything even our home please help us.
Rachel and Luke, My family has a one bedroom available for rent in the Sunset and my boyfriend and I have an 8 month old with lots of lightly used clothes, toys, carriers. Please let me know if any of this will help. ❤️
I live in San Jose, saw your story on the news. I don't have much money to donate, but I do have 2 sons, one is 6 years old, and the other is almost 3 months old, so I have a ton of clothes and toys I could give you. Everything is in good condition. I also have a few parenting books (What to Expect the First Year, What to Expect When You're Expecting, and a couple others) if you'd like them. I also have a great condition Pack 'n' Play, and a travel crib, probably more stuff I cant remembering but can definately give you. Please contact me if any of this sounds like stuff you'd like.
Hi Rachel and Luke, I am the neighbor next door of your apartment that caught on fire. I have friends who would like to donate some strollers and clothes for the baby. Please contact me when you can! Wishing the best for all 3 of you.
I live in Berkeley and still have my daughter's bassinet and crib. I also have some maternity clothes. Please let me know if I can help.
We have a playpen used once, happy to donate!
I'd love to hear more about your handyman skills/experience.
Read your story in the Chronicle ... we happen to have a brand new, unused infant carseat if you want it. (We got it to put it in a second car, but that ended up not happening). Our little guy is just about too big for it now anyway. Yours if you want it. Let me know!
we have a baby boy that just turned 1. we have used and unused items we can give you. please pm and we can drop it off.
I have items for kid - you can have: crib, tables books etc...
I have an arms reach cosleeper you can use.
It looks like you're getting a lot of offers of baby clothes and supplies, but I'd be happy to send you more of the same as well. We just decided not to have another child and I saved EVERYTHING from our first little boy. It's all in very good condition. Please let me know if you're interested. Wish we could do more.
Hi Rachel. I am sorry it happened to you. I have maternity clothes (size S and M), baby boy clothes, unopened pack of diapers, used baby car seat in good condition and other things that I can donate/ deliver. PM me through FB. I hope you find a new, affordable place to live soon!

I have a ton of baby stuff. Second hand but good. I don't have the extra money to help, but if you would like clothes, bouncy thing of majigs....I have them and am willing to deliver. I have children of both sexes so I have things that are unisex. Please join Facebook's Inner Sunset Parent (or mom) group. It's a great community. You could also email me directly via GoFundme.
