On Jan. 9 a fire raged through the Guinda home of Winters school nurse Roxanne Delfino and her husband Tim Mueller, co-owner of the 450-acre organic Riverdog Farm and Capay Valley volunteer fire captain.
A GoFundMe campaign was organized by Cassidy Campbell Mueller to assist the family to restore their lives after losing their home and belongings to the fire. Fortunately, no injuries were reported as family members escaped without injury.
According to the GoFundMe post, the couple had just moved into their new home on their farm with their three children.
The GoFundMe campaign has received an outpouring of community support. Initially seeking to raise $75,000 to help the family recover, donations have flowed in in increments between $5 to $5,000. By the third day of the campaign, donations totaled over $84,000 and the amount sought was raised to $100,000.
“Although there is a lot to be grateful for with the family healthy and safe, the loss is devastating, especially after a hard few years with injuries and illness,” the post read.
An anonymous donor on Sunday morning drove the campaign over its $100,000 goal. As of Tuesday, the campaign remained open.
