Stephanie Stauer's Living fund page

Stephanie Stauer is a victum of the recent California fire and has LOST her home due to that fire.  She plans to rebuild and needs support until insurance company can provide monies to support her and her two children.  One is going off to college and one still at home.   The insurance companies may take a while since so many lost thier homes in one of them any fires going on in Califoria.  Her zip code was 95404, 

Her work is willing to provide her with a small loan, but expects to get paid back.  Such a hardship for her to have to go through this with such stress! 

This young lady has been a good friend for so many years and has endured hardships before, she has not asked me to do this, I feel she deserves  HOPE for the furture of her family and a secure home! 

Please consider contributing to helping Stepahnie and her family and pets get back to working towards getting their home rebuilt and back on their feet!  

Threir home was burnt with no remnants remaining, so they have to start from scratch.  

They had their door knocked on during the night 2:30AM and asked to leave Immediately.  So not any time to take precious possesions with them.   They need everything !  This starting over is really from scratch!

PLEASE DONATE to this young family's NEW begining and a fresh start!  This fund will help them live until their insurance company can get to them and pay them what they need to rebuild!  (YES they have insuranse, but so many peope lost their homes in that area, may take a while before they get their claim!)  Their whole neighborhood lost their homes!  Such a tragedy!

IMAGINE los your home and all your neighbors displaced too!  NOTHING left standing!!!   All burned, nothing left!  So MANY are displaced, nothing in area that is recognizable!

Who  I am:  Mary Ruth Kozma (friend of family)

I have known Stephanie Strauer and her sister, Julie Gallagher and mother for many years.  Her mother and sister are very close and I contacted her sister for more information.  They are assisting as much as they can.  Distance gets in the way of helping in some ways.  Her mother, Cathy also has been evacuated due to California fires that are raging in that area!  (Nappa Valley)  So the fact that there many fires means harder to conect with family and friends! 

We have a FB forum where we keep in touch and plan on helping in any way we can!

ALL monies we collect will be for Stephanie Strauer family ONLY!  Julie Gallagher, her sister is helping with being beneficiary so as to route to Stephanie and family as she is not in permanent housing and has had to move around a lot up to now.  They are settled for a time and waiting to be able to rebuild and have their lives back (as much as they can do)!  

Thank you for considering helping out!  So much appreciated!
