Callagher Family Re-Build


My dear friends, Melany and Eric Callagher, were caught in the Santa Rosa fire-storm that hit on October 10th. In the blink of an eye, they lost their home and all of their treasured possessions. 

They escaped with their family, Larry Callagher (Eric’s Father) and Darilyn (Melany’s sister), who lived with them in the Coffey Park neighborhood, which was obliterated.  They are so thankful to have each other now – although they have virtually nothing else.

Your contributions would be such a help for them as they transition from nothing to having clothes, necessities, and funds to find and furnish a temporary home.  I ask on their behalf, as they would never ask on their own.  Any amount, large or small, would be such a help to see them through the difficult task of starting over in the coming months.

If you cannot contribute financially, they would be most greatful for your continued thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

About Me and this Campaign:

My name is Janet Eisan,  and I reside in Rohnert Park, CA - just south of the devastated Santa Rosa area.  I have known Melany and her Sister for 8 years. Melany is a fellow sweet adeline and Pacific Empire Chorus member.  She is the Lead singer in our Quartet - Surprise!   Her husband Eric and his father Larry are long time barbershoppers, singing with Redwood Chordsmen and VoCAL - and I've known Eric and Larry since he and Melany met.  

Your contribution to the goal of $20,000.00 will be used by all four family members for clothing, food, and funds to find a temporary home(s) that will house 4 adults with pets.  It will help with the expenses that will be incurred to buy furniture and the bare necessities that they will need to live and figure out where they go from here.  Your immediate financial assistance would be most appreciated.

To simplify handling your donations, Melany is the beneficiary of this campaign, and as such will be the single person with access to funds, withdrawing funds directly to distribute to her family.   Thank you for your kindness.
