Randy and Nancy Burkholder Benefit Fund

March 17, 2014 our family home caught fire. Despite the best efforts of some great firefighters the home could not be saved and was declared a total loss.

Randy built our home in 1976 board by board. It was a labor of love and a foundation for years of wonderful memories. 

We can't thank you enough for all of the love, support and prayers we have received during this difficult time. We have been overwhelmed by your kindness and generosity. But for those who want to and are able to do a little more here are some more ways to help:


Monetary donations can be made here on this website.

Clothing donations: We have reached our capacity with what we are currently able to store. Thank you so much for all of your donations!

Share your photos:

Firefighters were able to save some of our photographs but many photos of our younger years have been lost forever. If you have photos you would be willing to share please send them to Abbie at [email redacted] If you prefer to mail them please email her for her address. 

Share your memories: 

Our home housed 38 years of wonderful memories. If you have a memory you would like to share please send it to Abbie at [email redacted]

Continued Love, Support and Prayers: 

The outpouring of support for our family has been nothing short of amazing. Please continue to keep our family in your thoughts and prayers as we work to rebuild. We couldn't do it without you!
