Vanessa & Kareem Elhadidi Fire Fund

My name is Sarah McCoy Catalano. Although I don't live in Santa Rosa, I have worked in Santa Rosa as a pharmacist for 10 years both at Memorial Hospital and now Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital.  I consider my co-workers at Sutter family and love them dearly.  

My dear friend Vanessa and her husband Kareem Elhadidi lost their home in Larkfield (Santa Rosa)and everything they own Monday morning. She is part of my work family at Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital. The fire was unexpected and fast moving, but they were able to save their puppies and get out safely.  They have a long difficult road ahead of them having to rebuild.  I feel so helpless in being able to do something for them, but want to help in any way I can.  That is why I set up this fund. 

All funds will go directly to Vanessa Elhadidi.  She is the beneficiary. The funds will be used to help them pay for living expenses as they rebuild and replace items lost in the fire.
