Help the Breunig family

The Breunig family lost all of their possessions in a house fire on 09/17/14 and three of their five pets. Fortunately no humans were injured, but the family has been traumatized and left with nothing and no place to live. In addition, they have vet bills to pay.  Please help us help them! Anything at all will help. It's so very hard for them to accept this help but please know that they really appreciate it!! Even $1 makes a difference.

There is an immediate need for the following clothing items:

Mens jeans- sizes 32 x 34 and 30 x 32
Mens sweatpants- XL
Mens sweatshirts- XL tall and L or XL
Mens high tube socks

Ladies jeans- sizes 18-20 and 15
Ladies sweatpants- XL
Ladies sweatshirts- XL and 2XL
Ladies regular crew socks and ankle socks

Winter coats, hooded sweatshirts, gloves, scarves
Boots: Mens 10 1/2, Ladies 8 1/2 - 9 W

They are also in need of...well...everything. All household items, bedding, dishes, towels, kitchen appliances, furniture, 2 twin beds and a queen size bed. They also could really use access to a storage place for donated items while they find a place to live.
(They are looking for a 3 bdrm place that allows pets.)

The Breunig's pets were taken to Portage Veterinary Clinic in Portage. Sadly, the elderly dog that was rescued did not survive the first night. Anyone who would like to help with the pet related expenses is welcome to pay on the bill at PVC. A big thank you to Dr. Cooper and staff for all they did to save the pets.

There's been a lot of folks from the community just stopping by the house, driving by to offer help or ask questions on what is needed. What a wonderful gesture by so many of you. The family is so grateful and so are those of us in the neighborhood who are helping out!

Donated items can be dropped at Galaxy Pizza on Lake St in Pardeeville WI as soon as they reopen.

Hi everyone. I've been asked by GoFundMe to post a little bit about myself. It seems as though there are people out there in the world who take advantage of other people's misfortunes and benefit from it. So, in an effort to be transparent and to withdraw the monies being held which were donated by family and friends, I will provide the information they have asked me to provide:
1. Who are you? My name is Stacy VanWormer.
2. Where are you from? I'm from Pardeeville WI.
3. What is your relationship to the parties you're raising funds for? They are my neighbors.
4. How the funds will be spent (be specific as possible)? I'm assuming it will be used to replace all of their belongings that they recently lost in a house fire. How they spend the funds is none of my business. I just want to help them get back on their feet.
5. How you intend to get the funds to those in need? Either by transferring the funds to their bank account or requesting a check made out to the Breunig's. Whatever works best for them.
