Christmas Eve Fire Takes Everything

Christmas eve is usually a joyous time of the year when we surround ourselves with our family and friends. This year tragedy struck for a local Kalama Wa family John & Sherry Mickelson with their daughter Emily. When the family returned home this evening they found that their house had burnt Completely to the ground, their beloved family dogs were unable to escape the fire. This family has lost everything they own! They have Nothing. As we all tuck our loved ones in tonight and finish wrapping our last minute gifts and filling our stockings John, Sherry and Emily will be trying to process the devastating loss of their home and their sweet dogs!!! Please help show the Christmas spirit by helping this family out at a time when its needed most.  If there is anything that you can help with it is deeply appreciated. If you have clothing or household items that can be donated we can make arrangements for a drop off location!!! Please keep the Mickelson family in your thoughts and prayers this Christmas and through the New Year!!!
