Fire Destroys Family Home of 7

On the morning of Sunday, September 24, 2017, as the Cristanto family of 7 prepared to attend their church service, in an act of senseless violence, the father was threatened with a deadly weapon.  As the family fled for their safety and called for help, their home was lit on fire by their attacker.  In this gross act of arson, all of the family's furniture,  appliances, and personal belongings were destroyed in the fire.  The family was evacuated into a hotel.
   The Crisanto family was renting the home, and there is no coverage to replace any of their belongings. Cristanto family still needs to replace several items.  Any amount donated will help to purchase items of need such as: clothing, shoes, beds, blankets, sheets,  towels, kitchen items, sofa, lamps, and a refrigerator.  The approximate cost to replace all of these items for their family of seven is $10.000.  Even a $1 donation will help and be very appreciated.  Please help the Cristanto family!
