Marengo Explosion-The Jacobi Family

On Sunday morning June 11th at 5am the unexpected happened to my friends Jenny and Kevin Jacobi. They were living right next door to the home in Marengo that had the gas explosion and while the main home was leveled, they too lost their home completely. During this hard time for them of living hour by hour and the drastic changes in their lives to come, I'd like to be able to provide a generous gift to take a weight off of their shoulders. If you feel so inclined, feel free to donate what you can. They are starting over with what was supposed to be a care free summer playing with their children and making memories in their home and out back by their pool. Let's link arms and help them move forward as a community as many of us even heard the blast from miles away. Thank you!
