A Father Who Lost Everything

With a heavy heart I found out on October 9th 2017 my father had lost everything he has to the Tubbs fire, a home he has lived in for almost 30 years is now gone. It breaks my heart knowing that when he evacuated that early morning all he had were the clothes on his back. If anyone knows my father they know he is one of the most hard working men who worked his way up from nothing but not only that, he is also a great dad, brother, son and friend. Like many others, no one expected this to happen to the city of Santa Rosa nonetheless family communities in the area. Any help would be greatly appreciated to get my dad through these hard times. Thank you so much for all the love and support.

The Funds will be spent on replacing home items that were lost in the fire that insurance won't cover.

Plan on withdrawing the donations myself and personally handing it to my father.
