Charles & Joy Steffen Fire Fund

$730 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 11 people in 20 months
On Wednesday, January 4, 2017, approximately 1 pm, Charles was burning the end of a rope and set it aside, but did not realize it was still hot and smoldering.  Within seconds it started a fire that consumed their garage.  He tried to fight the fire with a bucket of water, but a neighbor saw the smoke and ran to their aid, and realized they could not win the fight.  Both Charles and Joy were removed safely, but within 20 minutes 2/3rds of their home was consumed by fire.  They stood outside hand-in-hand for 2 hours watching the fire fighters battle the flames.   
Joy is a beloved piano teacher of 60+ years, and has many students of all ages.  She also plays piano for a local Methodist congregation.  
This fund is  being created upon the request of many to offer immediate help and assistance with their many unexpected expenses (which their insurance may not cover).

Joy and Charles - I don't know why, but something told me I should look you up, since it's been such a long time. I'm sorry to hear about your devastating loss. I'm afraid I'm not much of a financial help, but I'm passing this along to FUMC Glenwood Springs and the many friends who still love you here.

Hate to see anything like this happen to anyone, especially a neighbor.
