Anderson Family - House Fire Relief

The Thomas fire in Ventura, CA has destroyed my sister's home and completely disrupted their lives.  They left in the middle of the night with nothing.  They have no clothes, no shoes, no contact lenses, no furniture, no beds, nothing.  They need to find a rental home and furnish it as quickly as possible as they both work and need to get back to "normal," although things won't be normal for a very long time.   My sister is a brilliant, hard working teacher and her wonderful husband works for the County of Ventura.  Their 14 year old son has lost everything as well and needs to get back to school and focus his attention there.   Anything you can do to help them get back on their feet until they figure out how to rebuild their lives would be immensely appreciated.

Who I am and where I'm located - I'm Alison Frank in San Marcos, CA
