McCormack Family CA Fire Funds

Dear friends and family,

On Monday October 9, a fire engulfed neighborhoods in California, taking the lives of 17 people and over 2,000 homes/buildings.

Thankfully, my Uncle Matt (a firefighter in Santa Rosa who has worked tirelessly to put out the flames), his wife, Dalia, and their three kids (Matthew, 12, Lily, 6, and Vivienne, 18 months), are all well and safe. Unfortunately, they lost their home and all of their personal belongings in the fire.

While we are figuring out how to move forward, I've started this fundraiser to help get them back on their feet to buy clothes, toys, supplies, and personal items for the kids and for mom and dad, as well as eventually home furnishings. Anything that you can give is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Sam
Hometown: Nantucket
Relation: niece

*funds will be transferred directly to Uncle Matt and Dalia's bank account.
