The Alexander Family Fund

Let’s help Nic, Susan, Jessica and Anna get back on their feet.... The owners of The Old Hartley Post Office Cafe at Hartley Historic Site are grief stricken after losing their home. Susan writes: “After a strong fight with this mega fire, our family has lost. Our family home is gone. Nic has been on the fire for 48 hours. He is shattered. It was so intense there was no stopping it. We are devastated and numb. Nic is ok but our home has been completely destroyed. I can’t express how terrible we are all feeling but we are safe our animals are safe and we have some of our important memories” My heart breaks for them all. These fires have hurt many and it’s far from over. While Nic was out protecting others their place went up in smoke. Let’s band together to help them get back on their feet.
