Atkins Family Fire Relief

The Atkins family suffered a devastating loss on July 18 when their home was destroyed by a fire. Fortunately the family escaped, but the house and its contents are a loss. Yes, there is insurance, but there will be immediate out of pocket expenses. If you love this family like we do, if you listened to the music Joe has nourished us with, if you’ve shared a drink or an oyster in this house, if your heart aches for them, if you drove by or texted or emailed & asked how you could help - well this is a start. We also know many in the community want to support them.

If you have specific skills & want to support the family that way - please contact me and I will add you to our spread sheet of helping hands.
