Leslie's relief fund - #campfire

This is Leslie Parsons, my father.  My father had a home in Paradise where he fed birds every morning, went to work doing construction, worked on landscaping his beautiful yard on the weekends (he even named his flowers), listened to one of his 7,000 records on the daily, and helped people in need any chance he got. Though he had a modest home, he often shared, sheltered and fed many people in need.  Most would say my father is an eccentric-fun-loving man, someone who always has his glass half-full, and someone who cares deeply about his community.  

My father was one of the many who lost his home in the Paradise Camp Fire and unfortunately was one of the many who did not have insurance. 

Right now, my father is living at one of the shelters in the back of his truck and even though he has a positive outlook on life right now, he will be faced with some challenges on finding a place to call "home".  

My attempt with this relief fund is to find my father a place to live during the winter, be able to buy him basic living necessities and some tools so he can hopefully start working again soon.  

Any help will be most appreciated. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!
