Lost his home to a house fire

   A community member's life changed in the blink of an eye on Monday night (July 4th), as his home caught on fire and was severly burned. Thankfully Harold was able to make it out with the help of a fellow community (and CVFD) member, but his home and belongings are a complete loss, with no house insurace. 

   Harold is a long time resident of East River, and employee of LP CanExel. He has a heart of gold and would help anyone, at anytime, with no hesitation. 

    This is our turn to rally together and show just how powerful, tight-knit, and helpful a community can be.  No donation is too small, and will make a great impact on Harold as he begins the journey of rebuilding his life. We greatly appreciate any amount, and thank-you so much!
