Ventura Fire - Lois & Bill Bloom

Ventura Fire - Total Loss for Lois & Bill Bloom

During the early part of December, the Ventura Thomas Fire (still burning) ravaged the Bloom's neighborhood. They were given just 2 hours notice to evacuate their home - in the dark and with no power.   They grabbed what they could see but had to leave behind almost everything, including years of memories, cherished family items and momentos.  

Unfortunately their home was a complete loss and they are left with very little. It will take a long time for them to build again, but they will. They have each other, they are safe, and their friends and family are there to help keep them strong. 

Any small donation will help provide them with the basic necessities while they re-build their home and their lives. 

Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers,

Steve & Terri Koepenick (Friends of the Blooms')
