Craig & Melaney CA Fire Victims
Our dear friends, for 18 years, Craig and Melaney just received word they lost everything they own in the Mendocino Complex Ranch Fire.

Roads to Craig and Melaney’s property have opened and this is what they saw! Words do not explain their loss of home and spaces....their journey will be one of starting over! Any donation however small or large is greatly appreciated!
We have not yet seen what the property looks like yet, but was told by a neighbor who survived the fire that we have a moonscape...the house is as flat as a pancake. All of our hard work reduced to rubble...we built our home with our own two hands, and just finished siding it 2 weeks before the fires..... We are weary of waiting for the evacuation orders to be lifted to see for ourselves... We are heartbroken. Thank you for your kind support... It means everything to us...
