Bradshaw Family Fund, Valley Fire
Hi Guys my name is Tara Pelter (Calistoga) I am creating this go fund me account for the Bradshaw family that has been affected by the Valley Fires.
When you say you have known someone for your whole entire life, this is the family that I talk about. I would call them very close family friends but family is just easier. Not only have Amanda and my mother been best friends since their Junior High days, we have all been a constant presence in each other’s lives for as Iong as I can remember. The Bradshaw family resided in Calistoga and then Middletown for many years. All three of their children have graduated from Middletown High. Amanda, Fred, Landen, Ashlyn & Evan are all such amazing, hardworking, generous, caring, and loving people. Unfortunately their lives have been turned upside down & inside out due to this horrible Valley Fire. They were evacuated from their Middletown home Saturday night taking only their pets, cars, the clothes on their backs and a few old family photos & important documents that they were able to grab. Today they were given confirmation by their neighbor that everything is gone as well as many of the homes on the street. The only thing that was spared was Fred's old '50 Chevy, which he has had since his teenage years. It's quite a miracle that the old girl survived! They are not sure exactly what the next step will be. As for now they are staying with my parents (Tom & Tammy Pelter) in Calistoga. I am setting up this go fund me account in hopes that it will help this amazing family get back on their feet!! The money will be spent to buy new furniture, appliances, clothes and etc. Whatever is needed for their new household. Work is suspended at this point for Fred, Amanda, and Evan.
Anything helps! It could be 5 or 10 dollars, whatever the case may be every little thing truly does help. Hopefully we can make this nightmare a little easier for them to cope with. Thanks so much everyone!!!
