Joe and Jeri Arnold - SR Fire Fund

My work colleague Jeri Arnold and her husband Joe were among the many people caught up in the Santa Rosa fires this week and unfortunately they have lost everything including their beloved home. They woke up in the middle of the night and could see the fires fast approaching with barely enough time to evacuate and leave to safety.

Joe and Jeri have been married for 24 years and have lived in Santa Rosa since 1965. Jeri's father owned the Silverado pharmacy and Joe was born and raised just 1 mile down the road from their home. It was only last night their worst fears were finally confirmed when a family friend who is a volunteer fire fighter was allowed access to the area and reported the terrible news.

It is hard to comprehend the loss they must be feeling right now but through gofundme I am hoping to raise a little money to help Jeri and Joe get some of the basics replaced and also help with temporary accommodation. Joe is a landscaper and he lost every single tool he had collected over the last 35 years plus his truck which of course makes getting back to a regular work lifestyle extremely difficult through this disaster.

If you can help to donate in any way no matter what amount I am sure this family would greatly appreciate it during this challenging time. This event will not stop Joe and Jeri and they are truly lovely people but everybody needs a little help sometimes in life.

Thank you in advance!
