Wright Family Christmas Eve fire

A chimney fire on Christmas Eve caused extensive damage in the home of Tim and Valerie Wright. Thankfully, Tim, Valerie, their 4 boys and their pets escaped unharmed. The search for their pet turtle is still underway.
The kitchen, family room, master bedroom and bath were completely destroyed. The electrical, heating and all windows will have to be replaced. The low end estimate to repair the home is $80,000.00. The Wright's did not have home owners insurance. The family is staying in temporary housing provided by a generous neighbor but will need to relocate into semi-permanent housing before long.
Any financial assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Cleanup efforts started on Tuesday and the expenses are already adding up. Friends please help us get this family back into their home.
