Joanne & Keith's Fire Recovery Fund

$13,094 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 134 people in 5 months
Created December 8, 2017
Joanne Terry has been my close friend for the past 15 years that we have lived in Ojai together. When I heard that she and her baby lost everything in the Thomas Fire that has ravaged Ojai and the surrounding area, I immediately wanted to help. Their most pressing need is affordable housing either in Ojai or Santa Barbara. They lost all their clothes, furniture, bedding, kitchen items and more. Joanne lost her belly dance costumes, laptop and many other items that will need to be replaced. Keith's toys and books were all burned as well.  Joanne has already spent almost $1,000 on replacing essential items for her and the baby. They have an immediate need for long-term housing and clothes. This money will be spent on rent and replacing all the necessary items that were lost in the fire as mentioned above. Please help them in any way you can. Your generosity in assisting them rebuild their lives is greatly appreciated.
Thank you!

We are almost half way to our goal! Today we received our biggest donation yet! We have gotten donations and messages of support from members throughout our community as well as strangers on the other side of the world who heard there is a need and wanted to help. Thank you everyone for being so generous and for sending so many encouraging words. I have also set up a storage unit for Joanne where she can keep donations of clothing, bedding, household items, etc. until she finds a place to live. Please let me know if you have items to donate.
With deep gratitude,
Serra
