Meredith Perry, along with her 4 boys, Jack (16), Lucas (13), Henry (8) & Charlie (7) lost their home last night after a fire "gutted"  their home in Fox River Grove, IL.

The family was able to make it out safely, however they were only able to walk out with the clothes on their back, everything else was lost in the fire.

Community members have been asking how they can help.  As they start rebuilding their life, if you would like to and are able to financially contribute, it would be much appreciated.

While they have home insurance, it won't cover all the expenses that will come up in this long process they are about to embark on.  

Thank you for considering donating...

I just wanted to share an update on behalf of the Perry Family. They have found a rental house in Fox River Grove and will be able to move into it this Friday (3/22), while they wait for their home to be rebuilt. Meredith had a few words to share...

"When this first happened and I watched my house burning down, my first thought after knowing my kids were okay was omg how am I going to do this alone, without a house!? I have never for one second, since I saw familiar faces on the scene, have been doing this alone, thanks to the overwhelming kindness of all of you. From my family and old friends to my Fox River Grove family, District 3 family, CG Trojans family, Cary family, Willow Grove family, BIG Hollow family, Kiaga family and just anonymous strangers, we have never been alone and know we never will be. We are all doing okay. The boys are all dealing with it in different ways, but I think all doing it in a way that is healthy and that's just going to take time. I want you to know that because of this fund we can stay in Fox River Grove. It will supplement the rent and I can keep my boys where they love. I can't thank everyone enough from the bottom of my heart."
