Help Jenny, Shea and Paul Ward

On Friday, April 28, while enjoying a tee ball game, The Ward Family's house caught fire. They raced home, very upset, to rescue their beloved dogs and crashed their car. It appears the car is totaled and the house will be uninhabitable for months. Luckily, all 3 family members are safe and the dogs were saved.

The immediate needs are great. They have no clothes, toys or personal items. They will need to outlay cash for replacements and the many stop gap measures for things we all take for granted. We will have a better idea of their overall needs after the insurance adjustors complete their work.

The family will be staying in a hotel for the time being. Please help them make the transition more comfortable and less disruptive for Jenny, Paul and 5 year old Shea.

It has been a while since I posted an update. Life has been crazy for Jenny, Paul and Shea. Each day seems to bring a new crisis and solutions are very slow to come. They miss 2 of their dogs who have gone to live with our sister. Life in a hotel is cramped and chaotic - but they are together!

Now for the good news! The Ward family will be moving into a longterm rental on June 1st! This has allowed them to register Shea for kindergarten! The hotel and the new apartment both have pools and Shea is already swimming by herself in the deep end! They will be able to have 2 dogs with them in the apartment so they will have the whole family back together - in shifts! The love of local friends has brought them 3 homemade meals a week for the entire month of May! And best of all, the generous donations here in this fund have meant that they haven't had to worry about buying the things they need to make life comfortable again.

Jenny and Paul can't thank you all enough for your love and support!

They hope to be in a more permanent rental soon!
