Vitullo family, Thomas fire

My name is Wiley Vitullo, and the house that I lived in for 25 years in Gobernador Canyon on Stanley Park rd in Carpinteria, burned down.

The Thomas fire has thrown all of our plans out the window. This isn't just a problem for myself, but my mother (Cindy) and father (Mike) who were also displaced.

  In the fire, we lost all of our belongings, our stability, our shelter, and much like many others that have lost beloved pets in this fire, four cats were lost as well. Unfortunately, there is no ask for help I could write that could replace the companionship they provided.

As of right now, we have no medium or longterm plans to deal with this loss and are just dealing with the rush of bad news the same as everyone else. It just happens to be about our family today.

We need to be able to pay for food and incidentals (gas, medicine,  etc.), and hopefully, if there is enough support, enough for a deposit on another place.

Please give whatever you can as soon as you can. Or, if you have any resources other than money that you can share, please reach out and let us know.
