Fran Merkle House Fire RecoveryFund

On the morning of August 19th, 2017, my Aunt Fran (my mom Joni's sister) lost her home in Barefoot Bay to a devastating fire. The fire caused a total loss of everything in the home, including her roommate Jean's cat, Jill. While we are extremely grateful that Fran and Jean are safe, they have nothing left but the clothes on their backs.

This fund is to help Fran and Jean obtain the necessities to rebuild their lives.

Anyone that knows my Aunt Fran knows what a selfless, caring, giving person she is. The funds will go directly to her, any donations would be extremely appreciated!!!
