Help Cassie Ford rebuild from Campfire

Update: Thanks to all the generous donations Cassie and Bruce now have a reliable car. That is step one on their road to recovery! They really need permanent housing now. Please, everyone if you can donate, share, or know of any housing in the Oakdale/Modesto area they really needs a place to call home! She can afford up to about 900/ month. She also needs a job as a certified medical assistant. Any leads would be appreciated! Thank you all for your support and generosity!! Cassie and Bruce lost everything in the Campfire. This picture shows what used to be her house . Her front door was right behind the largest tree and that is the burned remains of her car . Her area was among the first to be hit and was hit extremely hard. She was in our brother's car at the time and was unable to get hers in the few minutes she had to escape with her life. Her and Bruce made it out with their cat and a couple outfits just minutes before the fire engulfed her neighborhood, she could see the flames over the trees behind her house as she drove away. She will need funding to get a new car, find housing and replace furniture and belongings. The picture above shows what used to be her house and car. Any contributions will help greatly!  I am her sister and she has evacuated to my house but we are crowded here so help is appreciated.  The money donated will be used to purchase a vehicle for her and get her housing. I have set her up as a beneficiary for this account so she will be withdrawing the money herself.  Thank you for your generosity!
