Casper Fire Relief Fund

Hello friends and family. I’m reaching out on behalf of my dearest friend William Casper, a long time resident of Santa Cruz, and a local luthier with Santa Cruz Guitar Company. He recently lost his home in Bonny Doon, and all of his personal belongs, in the CZU Lightning Complex Fire. Fortunately he was able to escape in the middle of the night with his two cats Lexi and Gypsy.  Currently he is staying with a friend, and the cats are sheltered at a local veterinary facility, though he is anxious to reunite with his furry friends. He'll need to find pet-friendly housing (a financially challenging and daunting task in Santa Cruz) as well as replace furnishings, household items, clothing, etc. For those who are able, any assistance great or small would be welcomed. Thank you all!
