Reeds Employee, Coco Garcia, Lost Everything in Woolsey Fire
Please Help Coco Rebuild Her Life
Coco Left In The Middle of the Night to Return to Ashes
Late Thursday night on November 8 into the early morning on Friday November 9, 200,000 residents of the Conejo Valley and surrounding areas were mandatorily ordered to evacuate from their homes. A fire that started at Rockedyne off the 118 freeway near Simi Valley raced thru the open space that connects the 118 freeway to to the 101 freeway. This fire first destroyed homes in Oak Park and Thousand Oaks Thursday night into Friday morning.
At 5:30 am Friday morning the fire overtook fire fighters at the Canwood exit on the 101 freeway near Reeds Furniture, and jumped the 101 freeway from the north side to the south side. Once south of the 101 freeway, the fire consumed the brush of the Santa Monica Mountains where Malibu Lake and communities off Kanan Road lit up in flames. The Santa Ana winds raged, and fire fighters were at the mercy of mother nature.
Coco's home was nestled in the hills off of Kanan and during this fire storm her community burnt to the ground. After scorching the hills off of Kanan, the fire continued to race into Malibu to level Point Dume and the hills of Malibu. Just before leveling Malibu, the winds shifted and the fire headed towards Bell Canyon where it leveled almost the entire community and threatened the San Fernando Valley.
Our hearts ache as we witnesses the destruction caused by the flames. Over 600 homes were destroyed and our community has been devestated. This epic fire event a day after the shootings at Borderline in Thousand Oaks leave all of us speechless and remarkebly saddened by both tragedies. Our hearts and prayers go out to everyone affected by both tragedies.
Coco and many others are having to start their lives over and rebuild from scratch.
Please help Coco rebuild her life. She left her home Thursday night with only the clothes on her back. She lost her car, her home, and all of her belongings. She left in shock and has returned to ashes.
Our community at Reeds is trying to help Coco rebuild her life. We are trying to raise $5,000 for her to buy a car, rent a room and put clothes on her back so she can begin the recovery process. She is currenlty staying on her families couch in Orange County, but would like to return back to the Conejo Valley. With your help she can.
