Hello Astoria community and people who care about the Foss family. As many of you probably already heard, the Foss family lost their home to a mudslide last night. Everyone aside from Boo (their kitty) made it out - but everyone is hopeful Boo is hiding from being scared and will make his presence known soon. If you live in the area please keep an eye out. (UPDATE: Boo is safe and sound!)
In the meantime this sweet family has lost everything and despite not wanting to have to ask for help, has allowed me to start this fundraiser to ease the financial burden this has caused. Please help us by contributing to this fund so their immediate needs and bills are covered while they sort through their next steps. No one expects to lose everything so it will be a lengthy process to start over.
Cati has given back endlessly to her community. Two years ago (almost to the day) Cati organized an animal food drive to benefit the coast guard when they were not getting paid. She also volunteers her time with 4H, as well as trains animals to become therapy pets for our local hospitals and care facilities. These are just a few examples of the type of family they are, and why they are so deserving of support during an impossibly hard time.
Thank you so much for your support.
