I posted yesterday on the Facebook page about a local family of five who has lost everything due to a house fire. They literally left their home with nothing more than the pajamas on their backs. You can read more about the fire here.
In a season that is full of giving, I am hoping that some of my readers will help this family in their time of need. This is more than just a Christmas without gifts, this is a Christmas without a home, clothing, dishes, furniture, school supplies - even the most basic necessities.
Currently, they are in need of just about everything, but I'll try to update this post as I learn more.
You'll find all of their sizes at the bottom of this post. If there is something you can donate please let me know - we'll work the logistics out! Think about what you have stockpiled, or things that you were just going to take to Goodwill. I cannot imagine the devastation that this family is facing right now, and I know that even if it's a box of dishes it's more than they have now!
