DeSanto Recovery Fund

Our dear friends, Colleen and Mark DeSanto, in our tiny community of Creede, CO, have just experienced the most incredible tragedy of losing their home to fire. The house, workshop and garage were a total loss. The fire engulfed their home and every memory inside it. They both built this dream home with their own hands with the vision of sharing it with everyone, which they did.

Colleen lost her art studio and much of her beautiful artwork. Mark lost his extensive workshop  which was used to build their house and most of the interior furnishings. Mark was hospitalized for burns sustained while trying to save as many family memories as possible.

Mark and Colleen have given to so many in our community that we would like to do everything possible to help them rebuild their lives. Please contribute what you can to help them get through this terrible tragedy.
