Dowell Family House Fire

Hi, I'm Meg Thomas from Grain Valley,  a friend of the Dowell Family. I have created this page for those who would like to support the Dowell Family as they recover from a devastating house fire. Late last night, Paul and Kyla Dowell and their children Tori, Wyatt, Maddix, and Easton lost their home and everything in it . While we are all very grateful they were not home and are all safe, there is certainly damage to be recovered. Even though much of what is most important was lost and cannot be replaced. These funds will got directly to Paul and Kyla to help them with their necessities, clothing, food, and whatever they may need to get through the next several months as they get settled into another home.  I appreciate any donation big or small to help this family during this tragic time.  All of you who know them realize they are such wonderful people who are always willing to help anyone in need. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers during this time and the year ahead. 

If anyone has any special photos of them, their family or children they would be greatly appreciated and can be mailed to

If you prefer to make a donation of a GiftCard or help in another way please reach out to Me(Meg Thomas)  or Mandi Mudd.  

Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers, and donations. These funds will be available for Paul and Kyla to withdrawal to be used for replacement of household items and necessities immediately and in the coming months.
