PHIL GOMEZ HAS THE STORY FROM SANTA CRUZ. PHIL: THEY HAVE SURVIVED THE RECESSION, THE FIRE AND THE DROUGHT, BUT WINTER STORMS ARE ANOTHER HURDLE THEY ARE FACING AND HOPING TO OVERCOME. BUT FINANCIAL SUPPORT WILL BE NEEDED TO HELP THE NONPROFIT GET THINGS BACK IN ORDER. THIS IS A 2.5-YEAR-OLD MAYOR.>>A LOT OF THEM HAVE INJURY OR ILLNESS. WE GET OF THAT OUT. — GET A BED OUT.>>WHAT HAPPENED IS THEY DID NOT COMPLETE THE WORK BEFORE THE RAINS CAME. PHIL: PG&E WAS REMOVING EUCALYPTUS TREES INJURES THE CLOSE TO OUR LINES, BUT HAD TO MOVE ON TO OTHER THINGS. THERE IS MONEY FROM ALL THE FLOODING. WE ARE SCRAMBLING KEEPING HORSES DRAW A UNDER SHELTER. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO GET THEM ADOPTED. PHIL: THEY ARE HOPING TO RAISE $8,000 TO KEEP THE NONPROFIT ON TRACK.>>WE ARE GOING TO SHOW A NICE HORSE MOVIE AND HOPEFULLY RAISE SOME FUNDS TO KEEP OUR DOORS OPEN. PHIL: THEY COULD BE ELIGIBLE FOR FEDERAL SMALL BUSINESS DISASTER LOANS. AN SBA OFFICE HAS BEEN BUSY WITH THOSE APPLYING FOR ASSISTANCE.>>PRIVATE NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS ARE ELIGIBLE TO APPLY IF THEY HAD DAMAGE FROM THE SEVERE STORMS AND FLOODING. PHIL: IN HAPPIER TIMES, THEY WOULD HAVE HELD A FUNDRAISER ON THEIR OWN PROPERTY, BUT CONDITIONS WILL JUST NOT ALLOW IT.>>WE PRAY, WE JUST KEEP PRAYING WE WILL DO WHAT WE ARE DOING BECAUSE THE HORSES ARE WORTH IT. PHIL: THE FUNDRAISING EFFORT IS SCHEDULED FOR APRIL 13 AT 6:00 P.M..
