Rising from the Ashes Fund

Family, friends and associates of Dorothy, Adrian, Anais, Atlix and Zero (the hero dog). On Wednesday, September 19th, Dorothy Martinezand her family were displaced from their apartment by a fire to their building.  Thankfully, they all made it out safe.

Unfortunately, the fire damaged the building to the point that their personal items and belongings suffered damage in the blaze. The reason for this fundraising page is to help provide them with some working capital to begin to rebuild and re-establish their livelihood tools and resources. Every dollar will be greatly appreciated and put to good use.

Additionally, a fundraiser event is in the works for the Martinez/Pacheco family on October 27th in San Juan Bautista. Please keep an eye out on social media and community billboards for further details.

At this time, the family asks that you hold off on calls and messages to them personally. They are asking for some time to absorb the weight of what has taken place.

Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity.
