Created May 20, 2019
Lauren Brintle a young, hard working professional was forced to jump out of a window from her fiery home on Sunday May 19, 2019 in Mt. Airy, North Carolina. This fire burned the entire multi-unit home structure to the ground causing 4 people to lose their lives. Lauren escaped the fire with minor injuries to face this devastating total loss only 7 days before her scheduled wedding day. The fire took all including Lauren's wedding dress and necessary essentials. Would you please consider joining us in alleviating portions of her loss by donating to Lauren's Go Fund Me? Funds are needed immediately to provide Lauren the necessities of putting her life back together.

***2nd UPDATE***

Since our last update Lauren has received:
A storage unit
Bed & Frame
Key fobs for vehicles
Personal Care Items

Items still needed:
Laptop (for school)
Smaller furniture items
Appliances
Paper Products

Last but certainly no least, we are very thankful to announce Lauren was able to proceed with her wedding. Below are a few words she shared about her special day...

"It would not have been possible without donations from everyone, the help we got setting up decorations, the donation of our rehearsal dinner by PAC Family Meats and flowers from Noma at Elk Creek Flower Farm. The venue owners, Matthew & Danielle, were also amazing."

Let's keep it coming - we stand only $3,975 away from attaining our goal for Lauren.

Please share her story with those you know who may be willing to help.
