Fire Recovery for Matthew Kopperud

Our Pre-K teacher Mrs. Kopperud's son Matthew is living in Canada with a host family, and experienced a parent's worst nightmare while living abroad. On February 24, he was awoken by a raging fire that nearly took the lives of all six people in the home. The house, cars, and everything inside was a total loss, including the lives of a few beloved pets. There is a fund set up for the family, and sadly Matthew is not covered for the loss of most of his belongings and has to rebuild out of his own pocket. Please help Matthew look forward from this terrible event. Any contributions will be very appreciated by the Kopperud family.
