Josie Vasquez Fire Fund

On May 21st, my friend Josie Vasquez and her family lost their home in a fire.  Everyone is safe, but the insurance company has determined it is a total loss. While they are insured, they have a lot of out-of-pocket expenses and have to replace everything.

Josie has worked for Residential & Community Living at UCSB for the last 20+ years. If you've ever interacted with her or walked into The Trailer, then you know she greets you with a smile and does what she can to help you. Josie is compassionate, dedicated, loving, and selfless. She has been a constant source of comfort for me over the years and my heart hurts for her current situation.  

If you are able, please help me raise money for my dear friend and her family.
