Thursday night, August 27th, a Neighborhood Council Valley Village (NCVV) board member lost her home and all contents to a fire. The neighbor above her also lost their home, and we’re not yet sure the damage to other surrounding neighbors. According to early reports, a cat and dog lost their lives as well.
At this time, we do not know how best to help her. She is staying with a friend overnight. As soon as she is able to provide us with a wish list of things that she will need going forward, we will update this post.
Please keep her in your thoughts or prayers, and we will update as soon as we are able.
Many thanks to the 75 firefighters who bravely fought this fire and saved the surrounding homes.
UPDATE: A GOFUNDME page has been set up to help get our neighbor Paulette Stokes back on her feet.
UPDATE #2: Flyer spotted in the immediate area announcing a concert Friday September 4th to help raise money for the neighbors.
