We need to rebuild after fire!

On 7/27/14 a lightning bolt struck the house of my best friend of 23 years, Nathalie Skovron Owens.  She is a stay at home mom to three amazing girls - Kristen (11), Rebecca (9) and Caroline (2).  Their rental home burned to the ground.  They had no rental insurance.  They lost everything - their beds, clothes, toys, electronics, towels, plates, sheets - everything!  Gary is a hardworking man who supports his family.  Unfortunately, they do not have the means to rebuild from scratch and they need our help. 

A few months ago, they adopted a beautiful yellow lab puppy named, Indy.  Indy could not go to the hotel with them so Indy is staying at my house 2 hours away from his family.  Please help them get back into a home that will allow their beloved puppy to come home and be with the family who loves him.

They will gratefully accept financial and material donations.  Please only give usable material donations that are in good condition.  Help these children rebuild their life so they can start school feeling confident and ready to learn in new clothes, new shoes and new backpacks.  Right now they have only the clothes on their backs.  Thank you for your time and your donations.

May the Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious unto you.  The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.  Numbers 6:24-26
