Just Family Fire Disaster Fund

On August 19th, 2020 the LNU Lightning Complex fire moved into Solano County, destroying homes and property in Vacaville and the surrounding areas.  Our co-worker and friend, Kendra Just and her husband Brian, had to flee the fire with their lives and vehicles only. Due to the speed of the encroaching fire they were unable to take their cats or animals with them. The following morning they discovered that their two beloved donkeys had survived.  Kendra's co-workers with the Center for Land-Based Learning have started this fundraiser on her and Brian's behalf.

They left their home with only the clothes on their backs. We are collecting donations to not only replace basics like toiletries, food and necessities, but also to assist them in the interim while they navigate the insurance and FEMA process. Currently Kendra and Brian are safe and living in their trailer at an RV park near the property. It’s too soon to know if they will need to rent interim housing or if they will remain in the trailer.  Needless to say they have a long road ahead of them to rebuild their lives and their home. Although photographs, mementos and heirlooms are irreplaceable, we can assist them during this time of great loss. Brian and Kendra have emphasized that they feel blessed since they made it out with their trailer and their kids are adults. They have pledged to donate any leftover funds to other families affected by the LNU Lightning Complex fire.

We thank you for viewing this and appreciate your support.
