Menth Family Fire Recovery

Three members of the same close-knit family, the Menths, lost everything, including their respective homes and everything within and around them, as flames ravaged their Safari West neighborhood in the early stages of the Tubbs fire in Santa Rosa, CA. It has been devastating, to say the least. My nephew’s two aunts, two uncles and cousin all barely escaped with the clothes on their backs, the fire raged that swiftly. We are eternally grateful they made it out with their lives and that of the two cats between them. Today, they need anything and everything essential for basic survival as the work to rebuild their shattered lives. It will take a long time, but they must start somewhere. To that end, I’m asking for your help. So, if you could, please help by giving any monetary donation. It will be gratefully accepted. ALL (100%) of the proceeds will go directly to them. I know that they will appreciate anything you can contribute on their behalf.

Thank you so much!
