As many of you are aware, Sonoma County, California was devastated by what has been called the “worst natural disaster in Northern California history.” Many residents were abruptly awakened in the early-morning hours of October 9th by the sound of heavy winds hurling large embers into their homes and yards. Some left with only the clothes on their backs with children and pets in tow.
The wildfires have impacted thousands of people, including the five staff members who lost their homes. Needless to say, their lives will be disrupted by these events for months or even years to come. Casey Clark, Kaylee Singkeo, Shawn Anderson, Rob Kent, and Cami Kent were all left without their homes from this disaster.
