Dykstra Family Fire Relief

On the morning of December 18th, 2013 the Dykstras' lives changed forever. They lost their home any everything in it to fire. The Dykstras, Dave and Valerie and their daughters Victoria and Cecilia have been left without a home, clothes, Christmas gifts or any other thing. The family had been left without insurance due to job loss earlier this year. Dave and Valerie both sustained injuries as a result of the fire and had to be taken to the hospital. They will be ok, but are left without a way to cover even basic medical costs.

But there is GOOD NEWS...YOU have friends, I have friends and they have friends! Many people have been looking for a way to help this family through this terrible event, well here it is! Let us all join hands and pull in one direction to help this family have a blessed Christmas and work toward rebuilding a bright future!

Please give what you can today!
