Fire Recovery for Lynne Gabbard

Many of you have heard about the massive fires in Northern California. On October 9th, our mom Lynne woke up to the intense smell of smoke, only to discover the area surrounding where she lived in the Redwood Valley was completely engulfed in flames. The fire was so bad, she had to leave immediately - she had no time to save anything. She fled in her pajamas and thankfully made it to safe ground.

The house where she was living ended up completely burning to the ground. Lynne lost everything she owned in the fire, including irreplacable items like family heirlooms, baby photos, and other treasured items. Those of you who know Lynne can attest to what a kind and loving person she is, and so the least we can do is help her get back on her feet as she begins to piece her life back together. Please consider donating to help her rebuild. The funds collected will be spent to replace her personal effects, buy clothes, a computer, household goods, supplies and materials she uses to run her business, as well as find temporary housing. No amount is too small! Thank you for your support.

This fundraiser has been put together by Lynne's sons, Will Hawkes, who resides in Los Angeles, and Corey Hall, who resides in Santa Ana.
