Help Billy & Jessica rebuild after the Bear fire

Please help Jessica and Bill Veerkamp whose homestead was burned down on Tuesday September 8 as the Bear Fire, now known as the North Complex West Zone Fire, raced 30 miles incinerating all in its path including our mountain community of Feather Falls. Billy has lived in Feather Falls all his life; his wife Jessica is from Berry Creek; this community was also burned during this fire. Both of their extended families lost everything in this fire. I call Billy the Mayor as he is very involved in our community and knows everyone. He is a willing giver for anyone that needs help; for instance putting on a new roof for a needy elderly neighbor or in our case helping us recover from our homestead loss in 2017 of the Ponderosa Fire. They feed us and others from their abundant (now burned) gardens. Please help this family reestablish themselves.
