2019 Flooding victim Linda Nicola

37693518_1552371897198411_r.jpeg37693518_1552371832631404_r.jpegRains from an atmospheric river storm at the Russian River has left retired UCSF nurse Linda Nicola’s beautiful retirement home and neighborhood in ruins. The record for the Russian River is 49.5 feet, in 1986, and the National Weather Service stated this peaked at 46. This devastation truly has caught everyone by surprise. Most were not prepared for this disaster, and any amount of money or time donated is greatly appreciated. Linda’s flood insurance does not cover any of her losses. Linda was an avid gardener, and she spent all last summer beautifying her yard with a creative landscape design.
Linda’s entire yard, fencing, and personal belongings under her home were destroyed in the flood. I hope you will aid generously in this regard and that we can come together to support Linda and help her regain her home back. Unfortunately, due to these unforeseen circumstances, Linda has had to board her two 6-month-old standard poodle puppies Benny and Carly Rose. These 2 puppies recently came into Linda’s life to fill the huge void that her beloved dog Ruby left. Ruby was a huge emotional support to Linda, and she died tragically at 8 years old in August. The puppies were born 3 days after Ruby died and were born to the same breeder that Ruby came from. Linda took this as a sign that these puppies were meant to help heal her broken heart. Benny and Carly Rose have been displaced from their home because the property fencing is missing, and the land Linda’s home resides is covered in toxic sludge. Let’s help get Benny and Carly Rose home soon! We are raising money for their room and board, and to help with Linda’s property expenses. Anything helps, big or small. Thank you!
