Clara/Thomas' house fire

As many of you know, Clara Delavallade, Thomas Bossuroy, Sacha, Adele, and Zacharie suffered a devastating house fire just a few days ago. While we are all grateful that no one was hurt, the reality is they have lost their home and will be displaced until the house can be rebuilt.  

When we discovered this at TCS, the first thing everyone said was “how can our community help?”   We mobilized quickly with immediate needs including clothing, lunchboxes, toys, and I know many have signed up for meals.   Clara and Thomas have been so moved by the outpouring of love and support from the TCS community as well as their neighborhood and friends.

In thinking about the enormity of it all, there will be many expenses that will not be covered by insurance - or might be covered but will take months to get reimbursed.  From towels to pots & pans, beds to dishes, etc...  there will be so many expenses in the coming weeks and months.  I think this is another way our community can provide meaningful and tangible assistance.
