Fire Fund for Tempi and Jim

My good friends, Tempi and Jim Fleischmann have suffered a huge loss...their house, which burned yesterday, 3/24, in Brainard. Many of you know Tempi especially, from her years working in various Chatham Restaurants and being a great friend to all!

The house and their belongings are completely lost, but thankfully, they and their pets, two dogs and two cats, escaped unharmed. So many of you have offered to help and they are incredibly thankful and appreciate everyone's support and outreach very much. 

Tempi and Jim do have homeowners insurance but in the meantime are in need of basic clothing, food, housing, and pet care.  We are setting up a GoFundMe page to help them and to get them back on their feet.  Monetary donations can be accepted here thru this page.  They have temporary housing, thanks to a good friend, donated clothing and some other items, however, they will need long term housing to house two adults, two dogs, and two cats. Money collected now will help to purchase basic necessities including a new mattress, some tools that were lost for Tempi's gardening business, and clothing and food for their pets.  Your support is greatly appreciated!
