Devastating Fire Takes It All

My husband David and I and are creating this page on behalf of his aunt Mary and cousin Sandy Swietlik who were recently affected by a condominium fire in Des Plaines, Illinois. 

On September 16th, 2018, building 9396 at The Landings in Des Plaines, Illinois broke fire at 7:42a.m. The fire started on the 6th floor of the building and immediately spread to the rest of the building.  Every single resident is now homeless and lost every single possession they owned, including vehicles that were parked underneath the building.  Sandy and Mary were among these residents. They were able to grab their dog Travis, but unfortunately lost every single item they owned in this fire. Just imagine losing EVERYTHING! Though we are truly blessed to have them safe and sound, it is simply heartbreaking knowing how hard they’ve worked all their lives to now lose it all. 
 
As our dear Sandy and Mary rebuild their lives, we are humbly requesting the support of our friends and family on donations that may help them through this long road ahead. We rise by lifting others, so let’s come together and give this deserving family a helping hand. 

 Thank you so much!
