Rapoport Family Fire Relief

The Rapoport family has been hit with an immeasurable loss. Chris's parents lost everything  when their Katie Lee Way house in the Mark West Estates neighborhood burned completely down due to the Santa Rosa fire. They had 15 minutes to get out and left with just the clothes.  We also had many things at his parents that we've lost to the fire.

Then we were evacuated and have been incurring displacement costs and will be facing cleaning expenses to our home and cars (none of which is covered and will be our responsibility).

In addition to all of this both Chris and I are being hit with an unknown amount of income loss. Each day this fire wrecks havoc with are at a 100% loss of income, and may only get 25% back when the ash settles. Many of his clients have also lost everything. Then my work is located within an evacuation zone, and has already endured fruit losses. Then when I return a large portion of my income is tied to foot traffic, tips and commission. 

Between the business expenses (Chris has been in business for 13 years) and personal expenses we need help.

There is no insurance for this sort of thing so anything is greatly appreciated while we fight this fire and it's struggles, and figure what to do. 
Some financial relief would mean so much while we process all that is going on.

As of 10/22 our approximate fire related expenses:
Loss of Income (October) $5155
Approximate cost of food spoilage $300
Cost of replacing car filters $520
Home depot $338 (hvac filters, cleaning supplies, ash/debris sorting supplies)
Mandatory evacuation displacement approximate cost $375

Thank you!
