Rising From the Ashes, Bill & Vicky

On Monday, October 9th, a raging firestorm devastated the area of Sonoma County, California. As the wind-whipped fire raged around them and embers rained down, Bill Collins and Vicky McKay were awakened by a neighbor and had minutes to escape with their lives.
The fire destroyed their home. They lost everything! (The photo above, is what remains of their home.)
Many friends and loved ones have asked how they could help. Your contribution would help them get through this crisis. 
Thanks for your support and loving concern.
