Nov 11, 2018 …. Our California Wildfires have destroyed yet another family home of dear Treehouse supporters. In the little Northern CA town of Paradise, it was last night the Lindsay family discovered, at KOA base camp, that their home, camper trailer and car were all lost in the fires. Steve and Teri Lindsay, along with their 3 children, had just moved into the home and in process of securing insurance (which is a difficult task now in Nor Cal fire zones). The policy was not yet in effect – THEY HAVE NO INSURANCE COVERAGE to pay for their temp living arrangements, personal items or to rebuild what they have lost.
What makes this even more devastating are the losses suffered with their disabled daughter – Megan’s life depends on her medical supplies and Cpac machine and has mobility only with her electric wheel chair. Thank goodness Megan’s sweet service dog, Giata, survived & is able to comfort her during this time.
For over 13 years, the Lindsay’s have come to the aid of Tony’s Treehouse, helping with fundraisers, using Megan’s wheelchair van to transport donations, giving time and money to help our cause. Let’s do what we can to show them that they are not alone, people care and will answer our call for help in the face of tragedy. ANY size donation will help.
Tax deductible contributions can be made through this website or you can mail a check to the address below, please reference the Lindsay Family Fund. Time is of the essence. The family and I are grateful for your support.
This month, we are rallying support for Laguna’s Hunger & Homelessness Awareness, and our Food Drive is in full swing to support community efforts.
Our volunteers have already dropped off 5 large boxes full with a wide variety of Oatmeal, granola bars, pancake mix, canned items, rice and many more non perishable goodies…. Read below about the Pantry, It’s Mission & It’s Need ~
