Gena and John Palo Fire Relief Fund

$25,040 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 346 people in 35 months
Jenny Miller Blacksher  CLAREMONT, CA

Our dear friends woke up to a a wall of flames coming their way the morning of the Glendora fire. With very little time to evacuate, they were able to get out unharmed. Unfortunately, John, Gena, Breanna, and Gavin lost their home ~ everything in it destroyed.
We want to help this beloved family to "pick up the pieces" and survive through this difficult time. So we are trying to raise money for their multiple expenses that they are now facing.
Please Help!!! Every individual donation makes a difference - every bit helps. Collectively we can make a huge difference. We all face hardships along the way, but when our friends and loved ones are going through such a tremendous loss, they need our support.
Thank you to all who donate! We truly appreciate it and the Palo Family will feel the love and support they need right now.

With Heartfelt Gratitude,
Friends of the Palos

Wow!!! There are no words to describe how caring, generous, and loving everyone has been the past 2 days. What started out as a few of us girls wanting to hopefully collect a modest amount to help the Palos, turned into this magnificent outpouring of support beyond what was imagined"¦
A sincere, amazed, humble THANK YOU to all!
