Help my Mom vs the wildfire

Most of you have heard about the devastating wildfires in North California completely destroying houses, buildings, etc. On Monday October 9th the fire reached Santa Rosa, California and my mother Maria with her husband Eric had to evacuate their homes at 3am. They left the area to be somewhere safe with Eric's family hoping that the fire would pass without harming their house and that they'd be returning to their home the next day.

Unfortunately nothing was left. After the fires moved forward, they learned that they lost everything.

For the moment my mom is staying with her husband's family, until they are advised what to do next. Thankfully they were saved; they are alive. But all their material goods are gone except for the clothes on their backs. Some things can be replaced, and some cannot. At the moment, what they really need is help to get back on their feet and somehow start anew.

I'm asking if you can help me help my mom get back up after this catastrophe. Anything that you can contribute at the moment, however big or small, would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for reading this, and sending lots of positive thoughts.
