Dennis Jepson House Fire Fund

On Thursday, June 15th, my father Dennis Jepson, watched his home burn to the ground. The firefighters did all that they could, but the century old farmhouse was no match for the flames. He escaped with only minor injuries, as did his dog Winston. The 6 week old kittens have some more severe injuries, but will recover. While no life was lost, unfortunately everything else in the home was. After grabbing the family photo album, all that could be done was to stand back and watch as 25 years of cherished memories and worldly possessions went up in flames and were reduced to smoldering ash.

Being resilient man that he is, we are choosing to focus on the future. All of the money that is raised will go to finding and furnishing a new home for him and his pets. Any amount of donation can go a long way in helping him recover. Thanks to the kindness of the community, Dennis has a bed to sleep in, and a couple changes of clothes. While none of his belongings can be recovered, hopefully, with your assistance, he can being to rebuild, and soon have a place to call home again.
