John McCarthy House Fire Fund

As most of you are aware, there has been an onset of wild fires throughout Northern California. John McCarthy and his wife, are victims of the fire.  John and his wife have recently received confirmation that their home and all contents have been completely destroyed.

John and his wife were evacuated from their home during the early morning hours on Monday morning.  Due to only having a few minutes to evacuate, there was no time to grab clothes, necessities, important documents or anything.

While John and his wife are safe, they have confirmation that their house is completely gone, burned in the fire.     They are staying in a hotel in a neighboring town.

With the current situation, we have decided to take up a collection to help out John and his wife with the daily things they need,  clothes and necessities for everyday life.  It will be quite some time before any insurance starts coming through and anything that we can to do to help ease this struggle, would be greatly appreciated by John and his wife.

We have received an outpouring of requests from people asking to help John.  We feel that setting up this page will be the easiest way for good samaritans to donate. 

I am  a co-worker of John McCarthy and will ensure the funds are received by John and his wife.
