Vance Family Fund

$2,455 of $10k goal

Raised by 47 people in 41 months
Elke Bach Gibbs  CHESTER, VA
On May 31, the Vance Family was asleep in their home when a fire broke out. They are a beautiful family with two boys ages 5 and 1. They have pretty much lost everything they own except the clothes on their backs. 

Father wears a size 38x32 and XXL shirts. Shoe size 11.
Mother wears 8-10 pants and large tops. Prefers yoga pants size medium. 
Boy age 5 wears 5/6 and show size 11.
Boy age 1 wears 12-18 months.
Grandfather wears size 36x32, size XL and size 11 shoe.

This fund is set up to help cover costs for a funeral for my cousins mother who lost her life in the house fire and to help get this family's feet on the ground.

Drop off locations include:
Colonial Heights: Tutu Cute and City of Colonial Heights Treasurer's Office
Sutherland: Sutherland Pharmacy
Chester/Chesterfield: Deux Amis Med Spa and Design Air
Dinwiddie: #1 Tire
