We have all said or heard in one place or time “there’s no place like home”… and how true that statement is. That feeling when you walk through the doors only to be greeted by a family member or pet to the aroma of a fresh made meal. Plopping down on your favorite chair or couch, curling up in a blanket as you sip coffee and catch up with your family on how the highlights of their day… but what if in a moments time all of that was gone.
Well for some of our friends, that is the reality they were faced with today. The Andre’s and Maves’ were both given the devastating news that as of today they had no “home” to return to. Instead, what once housed memories, family moments, and belongings, now only remains as a mound of debris and ashes.
This very reason is why Anne-Marie and I (Lead Pastors of House SF) , along with the Central Pacific District, have come together to create this Go Fund Me account on behalf of these families from our C&MA District and the church communities they so faithfully serve.
Would you partner with us to provide for them in their time of need by donating below?
Although we can’t un-do what occurred today, together we can build into these families and help them when they need it most. The goal with this fundraiser is to meet the vital and imiediate needs of these families. All of the proceeds raised will evenly be distrubuted to the families impacted.
If you can not provide financially, there is still so much you can do. Stay tuned as we post ways that you can contribute, but most of all continue to pray. Just this past Sunday we spoke at House SF about the power of prayer. Right now represents a crucial moment for us to pray for the counties of Sonoma and Napa, the families, businesses, churches, schools, hospitals and communities impacted by these horrific fires. Your prayers and provision will be able to impact and influence this time for the better.
We thank you in advance for your support, and will be sure to update you as soon as we can with our progress together.
Craig, Anne-Marie, and the Central Pacific District Family
***Administrative and Logistical Details regarding this campaign.
Myself (Craig) and my wife, Anne-Marie, are the Lead Pastors of House SF which is a Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA) church plant in San Francisco, California. We are friends with both the Andre family as well as the Maves family. All of our churches reside within the Central Pacific District of the C&MA and we are affiliated partner churches.
All of the funds raised in this campaign will be directly distributed to both of the families. Half will go to the Andre family and the other half will go to the Maves family.
Upon completion of this campaign, the funds will be routed into the Central Pacific District of C&MA's bank account and then checks will be written and delivered to both the Andre's and Maves' families.
The funds can be used at the descretion of the families to cover any or all costs associated with accomodation, relocation, moving, and or replacement of damaged and loss items, as well as any other costs incurred as a result of the North Bay Fires.
