Fuller Family House Fire
The Fullers, a family of six, have shown nothing but love and friendship since moving into the house across the street from us a year and a half ago. The parents, Michael and Jessi, have always reached out to us and others in the neighborhood with many game nights and potlucks. Not only are they loving neighbors, but also loving parents of a 16-year old boy, a 3-year old girl, a 2-year old girl, and a 9-month old girl.
This morning, January 15th, at roughly 2:00 AM, we looked outside our window to see the Fullers' house on fire. We are thankful to know that all six of the family members are safe.
However, the house was not as lucky. While it remains standing on the outside, the belongings of the family are completely ruined. They have lost almost everything they own and will need to replace it.
To meet their immediate needs, the Fullers have received some assistance from the Red Cross. We have opened this page with the okay of their relatives in hopes that we can fundraise some money for such a deserving family. They need money for clothing, diapers, and everyday essentials. All funds will go directly to the Fullers- lets show this family our love and support!
An alternate way (aside from this GoFundMe page) of donating to the Fullers is through a deposit at Plains Commerce Bank, where Jessi works. An account has been set up at the bank, and any deposit made to the "Jessi Fuller/Fuller Family Fire Fund" account will be made available to them immediately.
As for the funds collected on this page, I will keep the page up for a little longer for any potential donations to the Fullers and those will be given directly to them as well!
After talking with Jessi, she has called YOUR generosity "emotionally overwhelming", as they were not expecting anything from anyone.
Thank you all for your donations, prayers, and kind words!
The Fullers are beyond thankful for the kind messages, all who have reached out, and the financial support provided for their family. They are beyond thankful for everything and have found the generosity of others empowering.
A small update: For those asking about the immediate needs of the Fullers (clothing, food, etc.), those have been met for the time being thanks to the loving support of others. Currently, they are limited to a small amount of space so the best way to continue supporting them is through this page.
Genuinely, thank you all SO much!
