For those who don't know, early on the morning of New Year's Day, our dear friends
(David, Victoria and their three children) home was devastated by a raging fire. Thanks to their son Ben, they all escaped safely and without injuries. Multiple local volunteer fire companies arrive to save the burning home. Thank you to all who showed up. The family is eternally grateful, and feel blessed to have their entire family, including pets, safe and sound.
Now that they’ve had a few days to get their bearings, the process of clearing out the debris, taking stock of what remains, and sorting out what and how to rebuild starts. So many have reached out with such compassion and willingness to help.
Thank you to those of you who have already helped in so many ways. The outpouring of love and support from local and global community has been overwhelming. The family is so grateful.
As of now, these are the things that would be most helpful to the Byrnes family:
Donations to any of the local volunteer fire departments who helped New Year's Day. (Alfred Station, Alfred, Almond, Andover, Canisteo, Greenwood, Genesee PA, Whitesville, Wellsville) the Byrnes house number is 5511, so we thought $55.11 would be a good number to donate to these amazing people.
Gofundme donations that will go toward lodging, replacing lost belongings, and rebuilding their home.
Amazon eGift card sent to gmail account: victoriabyrnes88 for everyday items such as phone chargers, clothing, etc. or donations sent to The Byrnes Family PO Box 258 Alfred Station 14803.
Again, the overwhelming response from family, friends and neighbors has touched this family so deeply. The Brynes Family is grateful to live in such a caring community, and thank you all for your prayers, love, and support.
