Carrie Saunders - House Fire

Sadly one of our valued team members suffered an incredible loss on Friday when the house she and her kids shared was lost to a fire.  Carrie is Mom to three adorable boys, two live at home, youngest son is almost two.  

Working from her home office on Friday, Carrie  smelled smoke.  When she started looking for the source of the smoke  she walked into the front part of the house and saw flames going up the wall.   She had to move fast to get herself, her youngest son and his caregiver out of the house quickly.  She grabbed a coat, her purse and her laptop.  Everything else in the house is a complete loss, including family photos and tons of sentimental mementos.  All those unreplaceable treasured items we all hope to never loose.

Carrie has some insurance which will help but we need to get funds to her quickly so she can find another place to live and start rebuilding a home for herself and the kids.   For now she is looking for temporary housing while she looks for a permanent residence.   As we all know, putting a house together from nothing will take time and money.  

For anyone who knows Carrie they know she is an incrediblely strong woman with a very big heart.  She is typically the one helping others but right now she needs our help.
