Almeda Recovery for Francisco and Rosa Rivera

It's taken me a few days to set this up for my parents, because asking for funds is not something we're used to, but today, we are choosing courage over embarrassment.

My dad, Francisco AKA "Don Pancho" is a Vietnam War Veteran who has dedicated the last 26 years at Harry and David, and my mom, "Doña Rosa", who had done many jobs, like childcare, cleaning homes and most recently also worked at Harry and David, not only lost their home in the Almeda fire on Tuesday, September 8th, but part of their storage unit at A1 Self-Storage where they spent most of their weekends over the last 24 years selling CDs, Mexican blankets and more.

During the evacuation, my mom was only able to grab important documents and their medication box to hold them over for this week; leaving behind the rest.

My parents are looking forward to finding a new place to call their own and fill it with new memories. With the generosity of family and friends, they have some clothes and basic essentials. 

We appreciate your love, support, thoughts and prayers you have given us during this tragedy!

Me he tardado varios días para hacerle a mis papas esta cuenta, ya que pedir dinero no es algo a lo que estamos acostumbrados, pero hoy, escogeremos valor en vez de vergüenza. 


Mi papá, Fracisco, o mejor conocido como “Don Pancho” y mi mamá, Rosa, o “Doña Rosa”  o los dos conocidos como “Los del remate”, tristemente, el Martes 8 de Septiembre, no solamente perdieron su hogar en el fuego de Almeda, pero también parte de su mercancía que estaba en el remate de A1 Self-Storage donde pasaban sus fines de semana por los últimos 24 años vendiendo discos, cobijas y más. 


Durante la evacuación, mi mama solo pudo agarrar unos documentos y la caja de medicamentos para la semana; dejando lo demás.


Mis papás están listos para encontrar un nuevo hogar y llenarlo de nuevas memorias. Con la generosidad de familia y amistades, ya tienen alguna ropa y las cosas más básicas. 


Apreciamos su amor, apoyo, pensamientos y oraciones que nos han brindado durante esta tragedia inesperada.
