Schmit's Fire Relief Fund

$9,795 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 87 people in 5 months
Created December 5, 2017
The Thomas Fire in Ventura County has devistated the communty. Unfortunately my generous parents were hit hard, and have lost everything, their home in Upper Ojai, all their possessions and their pets.  My parents have lived in Upper Ojai for over 36 years. They are lucky and grateful that they are alive and that they are surrounded by a community full of friends. While they are insured, they are now tasked with rebuilding their lives from scratch. This includes paying their morgage and finding a new home to temporarily rent (two payments) while they decide what their next steps are. They will need to replace all their furniture, clothes and kitchen supplies. This is a daunting task and any help in the interim while waiting for the insurance is unbelievably appreciated. I will set up the withdrawl of the funds to go directly into my parents checking account so they can use the generous donations on their daily needs, such as new clothes, furniture, and other necessities. Thank you, Katie ( daughter of Helen and Phil Schmit)

Thank you to everyone that has donated! My parents are unsurprisingly resilient and taking this tragedy with the most positive attitude I have ever seen. Unfortunately there is still a lo g road ahead.

They send their gratitude to everyo e who has donated.

Helen and Phil are out of harms way for now. Staying in Oxanard while they look for a place to rent. They appreciate everyone's generosity. There are still major fires and zero containment and predicted continued high winds. Let's make sure as a community we support all those we can that are being affected by this tragic event.
