Silvia's Story

 Help us help Sylvia! 

She is an 88-year-old Camp Fire Survivor who has been living in her car with her two large dogs. We have been able to get her into a motel, and we are raising funds to continue assisting her with various resources while we work on a permanent housing solution. 

We will need to fill her new living situation once it is established with food for her and her dogs, bedding, the basic essentials.  

Silvia also will need clothes that fit her.  We are trying to raise funds to not only house her but feed her and get her clothes that fit. 

If you can help in anyway by donating monetary donations through my non-profit The Coral Apple Foundation you can receive a receipt which in turn will be tax deductible.

My name is Stephen Murray.

I am a survivor of the Northern California Camp Fire in Butte County.  The intent of this website is to help my friends and family share the word that I am raising awareness of what occurred in our town of Paradise, Ca November 8, 2018.  A firestorm swept through town early that morning and left our town in ashes.  

If you come to my website all I ask is that you help by sharing my link to get the word out and please help donate via PayPal, Venmo or in person when we see each other so I can help the people of our town re-locate, rebuild and survive.

Camp Fire, Paradise, CA

Stephen Murray was the maintenance man at the 281 resident trailer park in Paradise, California. On the morning of Thursday, November 8, he could see the fire coming. Before any orders to evacuate were sent out, he drove around the park honking his horn and alerting the residents.

Evacuation was not as easy as it sounded, many of the residents were elderly and Apple Tree Village Park only had one road leading out -- and that road was backed up and not moving...
