Stand by Sho - Thomas Fire Relief

Hello Everyone, if you could please take 3 minutes and share.

My name is Sean O'Brien and I am the Senior Police Service Officer with the Oxnard Police Department and I also live in Ventura, where the Thomas Fire has evacuated 100,000 people and has burned now more than 230,000 acres. I have worked with Sho Nazarian at the Oxnard Police Department for the past several years.

Sho was able to safely evacuate from the fire with a few treasured belongings. Her entire apartment complex (The Hawaiian Village Apartments), along with all of her possessions, was completely destroyed by the Thomas Fire. Sho would greatly benefit from your help as she is tasked with reestablishing her living situation.

If you know Sho, you know that she is a very proud and strong willed person who doesn't like asking for help. If you are able to assist in any manner, no matter how small, it would help relieve Sho of some of the financial stress this situation has created.  Funds would directly go to Sho to finding a new place to live, furniture, a bed, clothing, groceries, on-going bills, and toiletries would be greatly appreciated. The funds raised here will be given to Sho directly through's beneficiary tool which will give them direct access to these funds.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and generosity.
