Amy Thomas- Disaster Relief Fund

Update - On March 10th, 2023, Amy's house was hit again by the atmospheric storm which caused the levy to breach once again. Her newly remodeled project was flooded again and caused major damage to her updates. Let's help her.

On New Year’s Day, our dear friend Amy’s Watsonville home suffered irreparable damage when water began forcing its way into the house during the unprecedented storm that hit Santa Cruz County. Amy, and her mother, Susan, could only watch helplessly as their comfortable nest was submerged in water. 
They learned the water was contaminated after it was “red-tagged” by the county, which means it’s unsafe to enter the house without hazmat protection. It also means that the home will need to be rebuilt, and most of the belongings inside—furniture, beds, appliances--need to be replaced. In the meantime, Amy is paying thousands for a rental large enough to house her mom and children.
As a single mother of two amazing boys, a lifelong educator, and a pillar of the Pajaro Valley Unified School District, Amy deserves love from the community she loves and wholeheartedly dedicates herself to every day. 
While Amy is always first to help anyone in need, she never asks for assistance, so we are asking on her behalf. It’s time to pay it forward and help this wonderful person and her family rebuild their lives. Anything you can contribute is appreciated. Thank you kindly for your support.

With gratitude,
Brooke, Jackie, Elaine, Caryn, Laura and Gerri
