Fire Relief Fund For John & Trudy Kirby

My name is Colleen Kirby-Banas and I live in San Mateo, California. John and Trudy Kirby, my Dad and step-mom, have lost their home of 23 years located in the Berryessa Highlands, above beautiful Lake Berryessa, in the LNU Lightning Fire on Wednesday, August 19th.  Their house was one of three houses that burned down on their street as the fire was chaotic and jumped around the Highlands.  They now have to begin the long, difficult process of dealing with the insurance company, seeing what they might be able to find of their belongings if allowed back into the neighborhood and rebuilding their lives, likely somewhere other than the Highlands.  They need to start over and need our help.  They need to begin by purchasing the basic essentials - towels, soap, clothes - as what they grabbed while being evacuated was not enough to sustain them over a longer period of time.   Please help in any way you can.  Thank you!
