Aponte Family House Fire Recovery

On October 16, the Aponte Family suffered a horrible house fire at their home in Oswego.  Unfortunately, the fire consumed the entire house as well as all of their personal belongings including 3 vehicles. 

Thankfully, everyone made it out of the house safely.  However, Elio did sustain 1st and 2nd degree burns on his arm, head, and ear after going back in as he successfully rescued the family dog. 

His friends and coworkers at Olsson Roofing Company, have established this page to help the family get back on their feet with a goal of assisting them during this difficult time.

The Aponte Family is so grateful to all of those who have generously considered a donation of any sort to help assist reestablish their lives and home.
