All of us at C&D are deeply saddened by the Thomas Fire and subsequent devastation and loss of life caused by the mudslides. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to all who have lost loved ones, suffered injuries and lost property and irreplaceable possessions. It is difficult to comprehend the physical and emotional impact of these dual catastrophes.
We have witnessed incredible and heroic efforts by the first responders to these disasters. The selfless acts of the fire and police departments, medical personnel and everyday heroes among us, have saved lives and comforted many. We wish to express our gratitude for their service and courage in face of these powerful forces of nature.
At C&D, we are making a contribution to support the relief efforts. If you are interested in contributing, the United Way of Santa Barbara County has a listing of organizations accepting donations available on their website.
