Pagal Family - Santa Rosa Wildfire


Hello, I am Helen Brown from Bonney Lake, WA - my brother, Donnie Pagal and his wife Carol were victims of the Santa Rosa wildfires and needed to evacuate their Santa Rosa home within minutes. They left their home with each other, their two dogs and literally the clothes on their backs.Donnie is a Native Marine Corp Vet and both he and his wife worked for the US Postal Service - Donnie for over 40 years, and Carol for over 20. Last year, Donnie underwent a quadruple bypass. He recovered, and two weeks ago they finally finished some upgrades around their home - new roof, kitchen, paint, carpet, fence. All of it, including all of their worldly possessions, are gone.They have already had a difficult year. Now, as they begin to move forward from this tragic event, we want to help ease the burden that is before them. My brother would never ask for help himself. That is why we are putting this out there on their behalf to help them rebuild their lives to help them purchase food, clothing, toiletries, home goods. If you can help in any way, any amount would be amazing. Even if you cannot contribute financially, your thoughts and prayers are most appreciated.With gratitude from the bottom of our hearts.- Helen Pagal Brown (Donnie's sister) & Crystal Pagal (Donnie's daughter)
