Van Aacken Family - Creek Fire Home Lost

Donation protected
As many of you are aware, the Creek Fire ignited on September 4, 2020.  48 hours later, with 0% containment, the Van Aackens' home, along with many other community members', was lost.   Fortunately, they were able to evacuate and are safe!

There are simply no words to describe the devastation our dear friends are experiencing.  Let's show them that we are their village and ready to jump in and help them as we know they would do for us! Many people have expressed their generous willingness to help, so in conjunction with the family, I am setting this up in hopes to get this beautiful family back on their feet.  The donations will go directly to the Van Aackens to help get them through their relocation, purchase clothing, food and other expenses that will surely surface along the way as they start from scratch.

Thank you, on behalf of the Van Aackens, for your help!
