Lucas Family - Lost 3 Homes in Fire

My name is Annie Petersilge and I am raising funds for my childhood friend Cory Lucas and his family. 

Cory and his family lost 3 beautiful homes in the devastating Santa Rosa fire. Cory and his fiance bought a house in March 2017 that is now gone, his sister's house is gone and his mother's house is gone. They all escaped safely, but their homes and all of their possessions are completely demolished by the fire. Funds raised will be spent on food, clothing, temporary housing and eventually rebuilding all three houses. 

Cory and I grew up together in Sonoma County and are both educators. Cory teaches children with special needs and Autism. The photo included is of their neighborhood - they have not been able to visit their properties yet because the roads are still closed.

Any amount you can donate is greatly appreciated as Cory and his family begin to rebuild their lives. Thank you so much for your suppport!
