chimenti home burned down 12/5/17

My name is Mariah Coats, a cousin to the Chimenti family. I live in Fillmore, Ventura County. I'm doing this fundraiser to help support and repair my family from this horrible disaster. the money will be used to buy them beds, sheets, blankets, cooking utensils, etc. My family lost everything. My cousin brittany in the photo, lived with her dad David, mother Bridget, grandmother Denise, younger brother Tyler, youngest brother Michael, her fiance Alberto, their three year old son Noah, and her two month old daughter Lilliana. today they do not. Their Ventura home that they all worked so very hard for after being homeless three years ago, burnt down to the ground from the  #ThomasFire. Please help with anything possible. Any amount is appreciated and will be used to rebuild everything they've all lost.  As of January 1st 2018, they have found a new home and will be moving in soon. We appreciate everybody who has donated so far but now they will need everyday essentials, such as towels, dishes, silverware, pots and pans, etc. At the time of evacuation, my family members were only able to grab so much, being that they only had room for some clothes and Lilliana's things that she would need. Even then, so much was left behind. I personally do not know the amount it would take to restart a family of nine with a new home but if you can't help with money, then  blankets, pillows, clothes, socks, underwear, shoes, dog food for their dog Baby, and rabbit food for their Rabbit Nibbles. literally anything would help. God bless.
