Louise & Jerry Phillips Fire Recovery Fund

Louise and Jerry Phillips have been long time residents of Redwood Valley California. On the afternoon of July 7th, a wildfire swept through their neighborhood and destroyed their home, garage and every outbuilding on their property.  They had only a few moments to gather a couple items and evacuate before their home and property were destroyed.  The home and property have been in the family for over 70 years.  They raised their six children and made so many memories there.  They lost all the contents of their home and the many irreplaceable mementoes from their lifetime at the property.  

Jerry was a local business owner for decades, where he repaired all types of musical instruments for the public as well as local schools.  He taught music for many folks over the years and played in several jazz bands locally.  

Louise has spent many years working at the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office and a favorite to all who work there or have occasion to conduct business there.  Before working there, she was a teacher and mentor to countless children at Deep Valley Christian School.  She has also been an active member at the Redwood Valley Community Church for decades, where she enjoys teaching Sunday School and volunteering in so many other ways. 

This fund is meant to raise money to help Louise and Jerry get back on their feet, following their loss of their homes and belongings.  They are friends to so many in the community and any assistance would be greatly appreciated. 

Jerry and Louise are so moved by the outpouring of support from the community, friends and coworkers!   Thank you so much to all who have donated to help them get back on their feet!
