Ryan & Lauren's Fire Recovery Fund

Early in the morning on Tuesday, August 22, Ryan and Lauren lost their home, cars and landscaping equipment in a robbery and fire. Ryan was awakened by Emerson their dog and escaped without injury. Sadly, their cat Gary died during the blaze.

The fire is being investigated as potential arson, and may be retaliation for Ryan's reporting of an earlier robbery. When the fire started, a neighbor heard a crash, saw a fireball, and saw somebody running away from the scene. Ryan was involved recently with foiling a robbery at a local business in his back yard, where the culprits were forced to run off. He was then the victim of a robbery- they stole 2 of his leaf blowers from his yard.

Their belongings, Lauren's car, and Ryan's landscaping equipment are a total loss. They will stay with family temporarily, but ask for your support so that they can begin to rebuild their lives and so that Ryan can continue to work and earn income as they recover from this tragedy.

Whatever you can give is so greatly appreciated, and thank you in advance for your generosity.
