Help Montezuma Valley Market

The Montezuma Valley Market burned down on April 18th. The owners,Mike and Kemmi, have poured their hearts into building this business, and helping the Ranchita community. This is the only  store in Ranchita. It's a place where long distance hikers on the Pacific Crest Trail can sleep in a bunkhouse, resupply and even send resupply packages ahead to pickup.
Travelers heading  to the Anza Borrego desert look for "The Rancheti" aka Yeti, Sasquatch etc because it's an icon. 
But most of all, the Montezuma Valley Market is the dream of two young people who have served their country in the military and planned to be the change they want to see for the local community. They have served our community so well, and never expected, or even thought they would ever need,  anything in return 
Now, this family needs our help!
Just prior to the fire, they learned that their daughter has cancer. She began chemotherapy last week and will continue for some time. 
It turns out that the insurance will barely cover the lost inventory. 
So, if you want the market to rebuild, please donate. 
If you want to support these good community members, please donate. 
If you are just thinking "I wish I could help" please donate. 
Let's give back a little bit to this family that has given us so much!
