Please help our awesome neighbors Gary and Kirsti Johnson who lost everything thing in a terrible house fire on September 1st. Evey little bit helps!!

Yes insurance will kick in eventually. They have asked for nothing and I set this up on my own volition. The goal here is to help anyway we can. Some can give labor, some can give food...that’s all awesome. For those that want to help and money is easier then even $10 or $15 is fine.

Again this is not to give them a bonus but to help a little while they are so distraught.

Friends:

I was sent this message tonight from Gary and Kristi Johnson and asked to share this with you all. This is the family that lost about everything they had in the house fire September 1, 2018.

From The Johnson’s:

Friends and Family,

Wow. At first Gary, Reese and I were speechless about the fire, but now we find ourselves speechless when it comes to the kindness and generosity of family, friends, neighbors and strangers.

For those of you who have volunteered your time or financial assistance, we will be eternally grateful. It is difficult to describe in words how deeply we have been affected by the many offers of help from friends and strangers alike. We have been blessed with terrific family and friends, and the generosity of our neighbors in Hidden Valley, our employers, and in the Cottage Grove community has left us speechless.

Our home has been declared a total loss. On the night of the fire we were lucky to get out our family heirlooms, but not much else. I know many people are wondering what we need or can use at this time. Right now, we are in a Residence Inn nearby our home which makes difficult to find room for things other than what we can fit in limited space. I looked at a townhome this weekend that looks promising. We are hoping our insurance will approve this choice and we can get into a bigger space until we are able to rebuild. Once we are in a more than a hotel, we may be able to give people some further direction on our needs.

Lastly, we would like to say that this experience has reinforced what we have believed for some time. When someone is in need, step forward. There is always someone out there who could use your assistance, whether it be financial, a small donation, or your time. Give when or how you can because you never know when you will be the person on the receiving end.

Remember, no act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted. God bless you all.

With sincere gratitude,

Gary, Kristi and Reese Johnson
