Fortin Family

This campaign is for one of my dearest friends, Jeanine Fortin and her wonderful family:

This morning August 11, 2018, the Fortin Family of five, lost their home and all their belongings in a fire. Thank God the family made it out of the house. Unfortunatley, there were family pets in the home that did not make it. 

We are currently raising funds to pay for immediate needs and to help them pick up the pieces while gathering courage to start again.   The Fortins are homeless and lost everything in this fire. They will need our help while they try to rebuild their lives.

The Fortin Family of 5

Max Fortin is the Father, just retired from the military - Air Force  
Jeanine Fortin is the Mother currently working at Divine Savior 
Maximus Fortin 14 year old Boy, entering the 9th grade at Westfield High School
Molly Fortin 13 year old Girl, entering 8th grade at Westfield High School
Milo Fortin  4 years old, entering Kindergarten at Westfield Elementary

The children will be starting school very soon and Jeanine will need to head back to work. They have no clothes, shoes, or personal items.

The Fortin's house was locted between Harrisville and Westfield in Marquette County.   Jeanine and Max moved away from thier families because they were looking for a better community and home for them to raise their family.  -they found our community and thier home over 11 years ago...It was the perfect dream home to fill with childhood memories; now it's gone to ashes.

I am asking community, friends and family members to please help them 

Your help will be of great value to this family.
