Porath Sonoma Fire assistance fund

Swallow your pride and admit that we all need help at times.  ~ Huston Smith

Family and friends,
Joanne here from New York calling on all my friends and family!
Due to the catastrophic wildfires in Northern California, (Sonoma, CA) my family (Sabrina (neice), Scott (nephew-in-law), Anne (sister) and Tom (brother-in-law)) have been urgently evacuated from their homes this week and will be evacuated again.  With no time to pack or gather belongings and resources for sustenance, and no indication of when or what they will return to, immediate future, or even work - I have set up this fund for assistance.
They are currently in their camper (4 adults/2 dogs+cat) at a campground in Santa Rosa soon to be evacuated again.

Any small contribution you can donate that will be used for the following to keep them afloat for few weeks will be immensely necessary and appreciated: 
-Water
-Food
-Clothes and shoes
-Blankets and sheets
-Medications
-Propane, Fuel
-Batteries for headlamps and air bed pump
-Laundry money and soap
-Paper towels, plates, bowls, cutlery, toilet paper
-Masks/Air purifier

Their pride speaks strength, but their distraught voices speak uncertainty, distress and hardship.
