Bacheller Family Fire Recovery Fund

As many of you know, our dear friend Anne Jones Bacheller, her four children, and their family pets survived a house fire on June 2, 2017. 
Anne is one of the sweetest, kindest, and strongest people that most of us know, always willing to help whenever there is a need. After being widowed about 6 years ago, she has been raising four children on her own, going to school and working. She is set to start a brand new job Monday morning as the Children's Coordinator at the Waynesboro Public Library, where she will continue to make a positive difference in the local community.
This home was their first family home - a long-time dream that Anne worked incredibly hard to earn.  Her four children are fantastic young people, ranging in age from 9 to 18, and they were only able to escape with their lives, their pets, and nothing else.
Please consider a donation to help this family on the road to getting their lives put back together. If you would prefer to give an immediate, in-person donation of cash or check, please contact me right away and I will connect you with Anne's close friend in Waynesboro who is collecting these for the absolute most immediate needs, such as an outfit for Anne's first day on the job, shoes for the children, food, basic toiletries, and so forth.
Thank you so very much,
-Laura Montgomery
