Ruvalcaba family house fire

My name is Telese  Hoerauf  I am the neghbior to the Ruvalcaba family we live in Kiezer Oregon and I am working to raise money for medical bills for her daughter and husband and not only that but she still has her four children who have nothing and are going to need shoes, clothes,diapers,wipes, all the normal necessities to live they also need help to pay for the funeral cost . As many of you know, the family of 7 the mother the father the 8 year old 6 year old 4 year old and twins that are 2 years old were devastated by a house fire that destroyed their home Thursday night / Friday morning of this last week. My husband and I along with Keizer Fire Department and Keizer Police Department worked against time to save as many people as possible. The father and one of the daughters were rescued after enduring serious smoke inhalation and minor Burns on the father . They are both on life support fighting to survive.
As of late Saturday the father has passed away and as of late Sunday the daughter has passed away and they have both went to heaven.  The task of putting a home and necessities back together has fallen to a mother who now has to navigate this unexpected tragedy while staying at the side of her husband and child. I am reaching out to our community and asking for donations of money to aid in providing things that they need. Their home is damaged beyond repair along with all of their worldly possessions. I realize that not everyone who wishes to help is able to donate money which is why I am also accepting any donations as far as clothing, diapers and wipes which can be brought to my home until arrangements have been made to house this family. I do not have room for bigger items or furniture at this time but I know they will be in need of such things at some point so I am willing to coordinate with any individual or agency who may have ideas or resources on other ways to provide for this family. In times like these, communities can be a great support and I hope you all will join
me in standing with the Ruvalcaba family and making this transition as easy as possible. Thank you.
