On March 25 2014 a fast moving grease fire destroyed the kitchen of The Rudolph Family home. The family tried desperately to put out the fire, even going through two extinguishers that they kept in the kitchen for just this kind of emergency, with no luck. By the time the family ran out of the home, the flames were shooting out the windows and front door. What wasn't ruined by the fire was ruined by the smoke and then water when the fire department came to save the day. Pretty much everything that has cloth on it will have to be tossed. Thankfully no one was seriously injured.
Mike (Dad) has MS (Multiple-sclerosis) and is unable to work. Robert (son) has autism and needs constant care and help. They live on disability and the small pay check Caryn (Mom) gets from teaching at her sons small school. Mikes mother and sister also reside in the home.
The Rudolph family are now homeless!!! Their home cannot be occupied for 4-6 months due to the extensive fire and structual damage. The family are now trying desperatly to get back home. So anything will help them in this dark time, as they try to rebuild their scorched world. All money will go towards getting a Uhaul to help the family move and to replace damaged clothes and other items/goods. Please, anything you can give will make a difference. It's not everyday that we can be heroes but here is your chance to become one.
