Ventura-"Thomas Fire" Victims

Ventura County, CA has recently suffered massive damage due to the California wildfires currently burning in Southern California. The Thomas fire is now the second largest wildfire in California history and to date has currently destroyed over 275,000 acres, over 1000 structures in the greater Ventura County area, including Ojai, Carpinteria, Summerland and the lower Santa Barbara community of Montecito. The good news is that the evacuations have been lifted in the Santa Barbara area! With 60% containment things are looking up, but many people have already suffered unbelievable loss and we have lost a firefighters responsible for helping defend and save these beachside communities.
The town of Ventura is special to me as it is my childhood home and I still have many friends and family in the area. This is a grassroots effort started in order to help people in need and who have suffered such tragedy. I will personally deliver funds directly to the food bank, Red Cross, Humane Society and friends who need it most and have lost homes.  I am also taking gift cards, blankets, towels, cooking utensils and any other everyday items people may have lost in the fires. Any contributions will help and would be appreciated no later than December 25th, 2017.  Please help make someone's holiday season just a little bit better. Thank you for your generosity.
