Help Dr & Mrs McQuillan Thomas Fire

Tuesday morning December 5th, 2017 will forever be etched into my memory. I went to sleep on a business trip and woke up to the news that the city I grew up in, met the love of my life in, and brought my kids home in was being ravaged by a raging inferno. Thankfully no one was hurt, but my parents lost EVERYTHING less than 12 hours after being evacuated from their home. Any childhood memories, and photos from our past, every material possession...completely gone. To say that this is heartbreaking would be an understatement at the least. I wanted to start this to help them get the basics that they need to hopefully bring a small amount of normalcy to their life. The house was stuff, I’m thankful they are alive and nothing can ever replace them. Hopefully we can help them start to take a few steps forward.

Yesterday my parents were able to secure a long term rental!

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated. We are happy to be able to get out to see them tomorrow and help get a few things for the rental house. They are in need of furniture since nothing was spared at the house.

If you or anyone you know has any leads on affordable furniture, please let us know.

Thank you again for everything!

Mom and Dad are currently at a hotel in Ventura. It was really good to talk to them this morning, they seem in good spirits and are eagerly awaiting Amber and I to come and be with them for a few days. It’s the little things that we take for granted: clean socks, toiletries, nail clippers, etc.

Thank you so much to everyone who has helped. It is such an amazing blessing to be able to help them while being so far away at the moment.

Thank you so much to everyone who has helped! My parents found a hotel to stay at for the time being. They really were not able to take anything with them, so over 60 years of photographs are gone, all of their clothes - gone. They truly are starting fresh. My dad had to go and buy a cheap pair of reading glasses from the drug store as well.

To add insult to injury, my mom fell on Monday night and broke her clavicle as well. Hoping that she can get some relief!

We cannot put into words how much all of your support means to our family!
