Leary Family Support - Home Lost to Fire

The Leary family - Erik (40, Water Treatment operator), Jessica (33, Preschool Teacher), and their four kids (9-year old twins boys Tyler and Kyle, 6-year old Ryder, and 1-year old Allyson) lost their home in the early morning of July 18th, 2013. The family is safe, but they have lost nearly everything with limited means to replace the essentials.

The fire occurred at 2:00am while the family was sleeping, they are extremely fortunate to have made it out of the house safely. They literally only have the clothes they were wearing and their vehicles that were parked outside the home. Erik was able to get back into the house and retrieve Kyle's eyeglasses, almost everything else was lost to the fire. They have no ID's, no ATM cards, no checks...they are in an extremely difficult situation.

The morning of the disaster the Red Cross provided the family vouchers and some cash, while they are very grateful for that and it's very helpful, it isn't enough to get them on their feet again.

They need the support and monetary help of the community to get through this extraordinary family disaster. Please make any size donation to support this amazing family through their most difficult times.

This is our opportunity to come together as a greater community and support people that really need it, thank you for your kindness.
