Help Dawn Z. Fire & Van Fund

Dawn Z. is a caring mother of three (13, 12, and 4), going to school to be a nurse, and helps take care of her parents.  On July 14th her house had a fire in the kitchen.  It will be 3 - 4 months before they will be able to get back into the house.  Until then they are at an extended stay hotel.  While insurance covers much of the damage there are many incidental expenses that are not covered.  Two weeks after the fire, the engine in her van died and was beyond repair.  She and her children are relying on friends and family to get them to school, work, sports, and errands.  If the fire was not bad enough, now she is looking for a van. 

We are currently working with a dealership that is going to sell her a newer van for much less than their cost.  We will provide the dealership name and sales consultant information when the paperwork is signed.

We are asking for donations to help Dawn with these expenses.

We are doing this as a gift to her.  

Because we are doing this as a surprise, it is not linked to Facebook.  In approximately one week, we will link this with Facebook and the page will be listed in the Go Fund Me directory.  Until then, please forward the information via email.

Thank you in advance for your donations.
