Richard Ferdin Fire Recovery Fund

Last night my brother Richard was awaken by police and firefighters banging on doors yelling at him and his neighbors "everyone get out now your homes are on fire!" The entire neighborhood was engulfed in flames from the massive Sonoma/Napa wildfires.

Richard was able to run out with only the clothes on his back.  He has lost absolutely everything! He was not even able to save his car.

He is now stranded in an evacuation center with only the clothes he is wearing.

I know many people may feel numbed by so many recent requests for disaster donations but I am asking for you to please consider making a donation to help my brother.

His immediate needs are food, housing, clothes and transportation to get his job.
