The Palmiotto Family lost their home to a fire on the evening of February 25, 2023 on their son’s birthday. Mark, Erica, and their children are safe. Their beloved dog Rocky is in critical condition and their sweet cat, Gracie was found ok!
If you know Mark and Erica, you know they are the most giving, generous people that will do anything for anyone. They are a staple in their community and are front and center for their children and are those avid sports parents, traveling and coaching. They will give you the shirt off of their back, whether you’re a friend or a stranger. They are the most kind, loving and welcoming family you will ever meet. If you have ever been in their home, you know and feel the joy and love that fills it. They are the family that hosts every holiday, throws epic birthday parties and welcomes everyone. If you know them, you know what I mean by you come as a friend, and leave as a member of their family.
Mark and Erica give to their family, friends and community and never ask for anything in return. Please consider sharing and if you can, donating as they navigate this devastating time and loss.
UPDATE from Erica on 2/27:
First, I want to say how extremely lucky we are to be alive and well. We are so incredibly humbled by the community that has come together both near and far to help us during this devastating time of need.
On behalf of Mark and our children, we just want to send out a heartfelt THANK YOU. Although those words are truly not enough to explain our sentiments… we want to acknowledge the outpouring of support we have received from those near and dear to us AND perfect strangers too.
From our friends opening their home to us without hesitation to the clothes for our children to the go fund me to dropping off gift cards and sending things to us from Amazon and Walmart etc… words truly cannot express just how thankful we are.
We are still waiting to hear about our dog, Rocky. He was in critical but stable condition and hoping he doesn’t need much more to heal except time…
From a family who is always ready to welcome anyone with open arms, it is not easy to accept help from anyone… we are the ones who love to help. We never thought we would be in a position like this and truly, it is very difficult for us to accept all of these wonderful thoughts and gifts from all of you.
I want to answer each and every one of you who have sent messages and texts and I’m sorry if I haven’t yet. Sending our love back to all of you.
We are truly blessed and so touched by all of you
