Help Jill & Josh Menzies

Jill & Josh lost their two family house to a fire last night, January 25, 2014. Thankfully, they were able to get out with their three kids - Jade, Jocelyn and Jisele and their dog Rhapsody. They later found their cat, Reeses at 1 AM in a kitchen cabinet shivering but otherwise unhurt. Jade is 7 year old and attends the neighborhood school. She loves basketball and piano. Jocelyn is 4 years old and her best friend is Jade. She loves T-ball. Jizelle is only 6 months old and loves to smile.

When the fire began, Jill was able to get the kids out with their coats and jackets, but not much else. Josh tried to fight the fire until the local fire crew arrived, and suffered from smoke inhalation as a result. Jill is holding up ok given the circumstances.

The fire, smoke and water damage destroyed most of their possessions. The house is a total loss. They need to find a new place to live, and provide food and clothing for their children.

All funds raised will be given to them to help them get back on their feet and figure out their next steps.
