The Story

At 2 a.m. Monday morning, Stacy woke to her smoke alarm blaring. When she opened the window to let fresh air in and saw it was smokier outside the house and that there no electricity, she realized that she needed to get to safety. In that panicked moment she left her house in her night clothes leaving behind everything, including her false teeth, glasses and precious photos. As you can see by the photo, everything she had was burned to a crisp in this fast moving intense fire that is still at zero containment. It is one of the most devastating fires to have hit California. Unfortunately, Stacy is just one of the many who lost their home. People  have been very generous with clothing donations (including some tie dye!), But there is great need to replace her dentures so that she can eat solid foods; glasses, cuz you know, seeing. Help with finding her a new place to live - so first and last deposit...And help replacing furnishings, and her pink bicycle. Please donate what you can. Thank you so much.

What is there to say...? Thank you for your help hardly covers it. As you know from our previous update, we went to Stacy's home in Coffey Park on Friday. We found pieces of pottery but everything else is twisted metal and ash. (Sounds like band name...). It is surreal, and finally sinking in...thank goodness for the carbon monoxide alarm and Stacy's quick thinking in response, to just get the hell out. It saved her life. No drama here, just facts. 

People, strangers, You have been so kind and generous. Stacy has her beautiful smile back because a friend knew of a dentist in Vallejo who did same day work. He provided dentures for free because of the fire. 

The money you all have given will go towards housing. We think that will likely be a travel trailer or RV considering thousands, yes thousands are now looking for homes. We are looking for a place to put it as well. So, please any leads of a travel trailer or RV or a place to put it would be very much appreciated.

Please share again and give again if you can. Oh yeah, check the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms; they really do save lives!

Well, we were finally allowed into the area today, unfortunately it was after the rain and it was a bit mucky. The devastation up close was stunning and a bit overwhelming. The house was all in ashes beneith our feet. It was impossible to tell what was floor or shelf or  wall, it was all compacted and sunken below the foundation. The bed springs were all twisted and burnt ... sobering thought, and the only other things that could be identified were the washer/dryer/stove. A few trinkets were found but the highlight of the day was finding multiple pieces of pottery that Stacy had made and two teacups of her Grandmothers.

Next stop... permanent housing! 

Thanks for caring ❤️
