Donner Wildfire Recovery Fund

My parents, Paul & Susan Donner, lost their home in the wildfire that hit Coffey Park in Santa Rosa on Monday. The devastation of the neighborhood is unreal. Even with insurance, there are irreplaceable items for every family, as well as practical every day items, such as the tools my dad needs to run his painting business.
I lived and played in this house and neighborhood from age 6, as did my sister from age 3. The memories will live on, but we would like to help our parents rebuild what they can, and perhaps pass the kindness along to the rest of the community.
With help, we can fund things like neighborhood clean up, buying new clothing, or simply food and water for the interim during the rebuild.
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide. <3
