Sonoma County Fire Recovery

This GoFund me was set up by Kacie Lesky - Production Chairman of Distinguished Young Women of California for the English and Liang Families, who lost their homes in the Northern California Fires. The money raised will be withdrawn by Kacie Lesky, divided evenly and given to the families to help them buy new clothes and other items they need as they have lost everything. Sonoma County, home to the
Distinguished Young Women of California program for many years has been in flames, since the Tubbs fire began Sunday night. This horrific fire has burned acres upon acres and displaced thousands, some of them our very own Distinguished Young Women family. Our hearts are deeply saddened to learn that two families very near to the heart of the Distinguished Young Women of California program were uprooted by the devastating fire. Long term volunteers for the Distinguished Young Women of Sonoma County Local Program, Northern California At Large Program and California State Program Heather English, and her children Maddison, Trey and Devin Hennes have all lost their home, and all of their possessions. Catherine Liang Distinguished Young Woman of California class of 2017, and her family have lost everything as well. We are very grateful our DYW family is safe, but cannot imagine what it must be like to not have a house to go home to, or the countless keepsakes or mementos that were lost. We would like to rally our DYW family together across the local, state and national level to come together to truly support the members of our Distinguished Young Women family in their time of need. Any contribution, no matter how big or small, can help! Please help us give back to people who have done so much for our great program. We will take the money raised and split it among the members of the DYW family that were affected. If you have any questions or wish to help in other ways please reach out through the Distinguished Young Women of California Facebook Page
