Grossman Family Fire Recovery Fund

As many of you know, Santa Rosa, Napa, and a number of the surrounding counties have been devastated by the Tubbs Fire that continues to rage throughout northern California and has already destroyed 115,000 acres of homes. This includes our dear friends Dave, Melanie and Stella Grossman, who lost their newly purchased home and personal belongings in the fire.

Thankfully, all the Grossman's, including yorkies Ollie and Rudy, are safe. In the wake of this tragedy, they hope to rebuild their life. Join me in supporting Dave, Mel and baby Stella, as they face this incredibly difficult time. 

My goal is to raise $10,000 to help an awesome family that we all love dearly. Your contribution, no matter how big or small, will make a difference. They plan to donate any extra money not used on baby supplies, lodging, rebuilding and general wellbeing to community efforts and help take care of the Santa Rosa community they love.

Please join me in helping the Grossmans!!

**Full Disclosure - My name is Melinda Santana and I was lucky enough to meet both Mel and Dave during our undergrad years at UCDavis. They are two of  my favorite people that I've been lucky to call amazing friends for almost 10 years. They both consented to the start of this GoFundMe on their behalf.**
