Brand Family Bounceback Fund

It’s often said that bad things happen to good people. Unfortunately, that was true the morning of December 29th for David and Tricia Brand, their three children, and pets. At 11 am, an electrical issue sparked and rapidly consumed the home with fire. The home, all possessions, and their beloved dog Tracker and cat Jasper were lost - thankfully, Mom pulled the kids out just in time, and with the assistance of a fire alarm.

For anyone that knows the Brands, they are the sweetest, nicest people there are with the most adorable kids. David is a nurse at Roswell and Tricia worked there in the same capacity. Each dedicates their lives to helping others when they need it most.  Now, they need help.  With just the clothes on their backs, getting started is the hardest part.

This GoFundMe is being arranged by Michelle and Chris Papa, close friends with the Brands. When we experienced a house fire two years ago, Tricia and Dave were one of the first to arrive with supplies, clothing, and food.

We are no longer in need of clothing donations - thank you so much for all of those who helped!

Thank you for reading and helping!
