Hurd Family Disaster Relief Fund

Our good friends Steve and Laura Hurd and their six year old son Noah lost everything on November 9th when the Woolsey fire destroyed their home and all belongings in upper Latigo Canyon. 

Steve, whom I’ve known since we were six years old in 1977, has always been a true brother to me and everyone who knows him. Let’s show the Hurd family some community support in this time of devastating loss. 

The Hurds have no fire insurance, renters insurance, nor property insurance.

Please help us get the Hurd family back on their feet with enough money to find a place to live and start rebuilding their lives #MalibuStrong!!! ❤️

Funds will be handled by Jody Kern and distributed directly to Steve Hurd to help the Hurd family get food, clothes, essential furniture, bedding, and other household items, and cover expenses of moving into a new living situation.

If there are any questions about the campaign and funds, Jody Kern is easy to get ahold of as owner-operator of Malibu Paradise Plumbing in Malibu, CA.

Thanks so much to everyone for all of your love and help!!!
