Would you like to help? Financial donations to those affected by the fire may be made payable to PUENTE. Please put FIRE in the memo and mail to Puente, PO Box 554, Pescadero CA 94060. If you are able to offer permanent housing for the two families that have lost their homes, please email Kerry Lobel at email@example.com. The families will of course, pay rent but we need your help to identify suitable housing in Pescadero. Please, do not donate items at this time – once the families are settled, they will need personal and household items.
We are grateful to our colleagues, sister organizations, county government agencies, the Red Cross and the many fire fighters, sheriffs and CHP officers that worked together yesterday. Puente staff worked with the Red Cross, St. Vincent de Paul and the SCCS Thrift Store to ensure that all are temporarily housed and have the very basic essentials. Once again our community proved its strength, compassion, and resilience.
Puente Counselors are available for anyone needing emotional support. Please do not hesitate to call 650.879.1691. Thank you all.
-The Puente Staff and Board
