Carpenter Family Fire Recovery

On Tuesday evening the CZU Lighting Complex fire grew unpredictably making  its'  way to the Santa Cruz County coastline at Waddell Creek.  

With very little notice the Swanton community, home to Carlos Carpenter's family, was under immediate evacuation     orders.  They left with only what they could carry.

As of now our brothers parents will have nothing to return too as the entire community has been leveled.

The family will need to rebuild and tend to all the other needs that arrive from the  loss of a home.

Your donation will help the Carpenter family return to the land they have spent  more than three decades on.

The Menlo Park Firefighters Association thanks you for helping one of our own and his family (Sharon, Kerry, Asia, & Taj)   to recover from this devastating loss.
