House Fire

The Delaneys and their six special needs adopted children lost everything in a fire in Calhoun, GA on Thursday, 10/28/13.

The community has rallied around them to help them get set up in a hotel, salvage what belongings they can, and rebuild their lives after this disaster.

Many people have expressed interest in helping this family with donations. We set up this page for people who can't make it to Calhoun to give clothes, or who would rather give financial assistance.
