Joanne Terry has been my close friend for the past 15 years that we have lived in Ojai together. When I heard that she and her baby lost everything in the Thomas Fire that has ravaged Ojai and the surrounding area, I immediately wanted to help. Their most pressing need is affordable housing either in Ojai or Santa Barbara. They lost all their clothes, furniture, bedding, kitchen items and more. Joanne lost her belly dance costumes, laptop and many other items that will need to be replaced. Keith's toys and books were all burned as well. Joanne has already spent almost $1,000 on replacing essential items for her and the baby. They have an immediate need for long-term housing and clothes. This money will be spent on rent and replacing all the necessary items that were lost in the fire as mentioned above. Please help them in any way you can. Your generosity in assisting them rebuild their lives is greatly appreciated.
