Claudia is a Napa resident and works as a nurse at the hospital. She has been severely affected by the fires and lost her home and everything she owned. All proceeds will be given to Claudia to help her during these difficult times. This is the time to get together to help someone we care about.
The Rodriguez family was severely affected by the Glass Fire. They lost everything. They did not have any time to retrieve their belongings. They lost their home, all of their belongings and their workplace in the same night.
In the very early morning hours of Sunday September 27th, our beloved friends and staff of Boys & Girls Club, Michael and Lana Tillotson and 4-year-old Cori, fled their home in Deer Park as flames were visible from their house. Although they escaped the fire with little warning and are safe, unfortunately, their rental home and all belongings have been reduced to ashes.
Michelle and Alex's home burned down- they fled the flames with their two sons, their dog, cat and the clothes on their backs. If you are able to donate to help them get back on their feet-they would be so grateful.

To those of us who've been touched by Coach Macmillan either as a student at American Canyon High School or otherwise, as well as family and friends, please join in this effort to help him, his wife, and his children rebuild their lives.
Imagine packing up your entire life in 15 minutes.... When Nathan, wife Sarah and daughter Sophia were notified they had to evacuate, they thought like many others, we will be back. Tragically what they returned to was a pile of ash as their home and all of their possessions perished in the Glass Fire.
On September 27th, 4 am, the Burton family from St Helena was woken up by sirens warning them that a fire was nearby and they had 30 minutes to get out. They got out with as much paperwork as they could fit in their car and some clothes, computers and school books. The fires destroyed their rental home and most of the homes in their neighborhood. Melinda (Lindy) Burton is a single mom raising her 2 teenage sons, Clayton (16) and Sean (15). They could really use our love and support right now as they have lost everything they own in an instant.
Amy fled her home with minutes notice, only taking what few items she could gather and fit in her car. Her and her family have helped many around the valley for a very long time. Her husband Tim was recently up in Pope Valley saving homes during the Hennessey Fire. Let's do what can to help these loving people who have lost it all.
Allen and Sarah Blansette lost their home and everything in it due to the wildfire Shady/Glass/Boyden Complex fire. They are great people who'd give you the shirt of their backs so now it's our turn to give them the hand they need to start moving forward. This couple has been through heartache before and I know they'll make it through this too. But it would be nice to help them through it
Two young children, Alex and Odalys, have lost their home and every single one of their belongings.
Further, both children have serious autoimmune disorders. Prior to the fire their medical history has been astounding. We need to raise a substantial amount of money so that they can secure reasonable housing and cover their cost of living—in particular, medical bills.
