The Heskett Family Needs Your Help

The Heskett Family is one of the families who have lost everything in the Tubbs Fire in Santa Rosa. Their entire neighborhood is gone. 

Jack is a single father raising his 2 children after his wife passed away 3 years ago.

Amberlyn is a senior in high school who maintains a 4.0÷ GPA as well as works almost full time. Her workplace has also been destroyed in the fire.

Gabriel is a freshman in high school and in a Boy Scout troup, which many of his fellow members are also affected by this tragedy.

I am the children's GodMother and am trying to get help for them with their day to day necessities. Keep in mind, they have lost EVERYTHING. Everything needs to be replaced...clothes, toiletries, shoes, food, bedding, etc. 

They are currently being put up in a hotel overnight tonight in San Francisco, but after that the insurance company is trying to find a more permanent solution.

This family, especially the children, have had more than a lifetime of challenges and tragedies, any help that you can provide is GREATLY appreciated and will only be used to try to get them comfortable and into a life of somewhat "normalcy".
