Assistance Requested

Yesterday, I found out that my dear friend Nancy's parents' home was destroyed in the fire. They lived in the Oakridge Mobile Home Park, where 500 homes were lost. They left with the clothes on their back and, thankfully, their medications.

They're going to be fine. Nancy is incredibly impressed by their good spirits - but knowing Nancy, now I know where she gets it from. All of us at work are pitching in donations to help them get back on their feet.

However, they're just as worried about all their friends and neighbors that have lost everything. So I ask again, please donate $5, $10, whatever you can to help these families. Thank you.

I'm glad to hear that your friends are physically okay. Donation made. Who knows, I might need Red Cross assistance during next year's hurricane season. My prayers are with California.

Sadly, this has been a year with a need for lots and lots of donations to the Red Cross.

Donation on the way tomorrow.

Your friend Nancy's parents will be in my thoughts.

That's beyond horrible. I couldn't imagine.

We've donated already to the red cross through my husbands work.
