Galinato House Fire Fund

On the early morning of December 12th in less than 15 minutes our dear neighbors saw their house go up in flames. Dennis, Erin, Marshal (14), Grace (11) and their black lab Oz stood together thankful that they were safe, but in shock as their house burned.  Erin is a Boise High science teacher and Dennis is a principal engineer with Murraysmith.  Marshall is a 9th grader at North Jr High and Grace is a 6th grader at Roosevelt Elementary.  Dennis is a Bishop Kelly Alumni and Erin grew up in Cascade, Idaho.  Both are graduates of the University of Idaho. 

They lost every possesion, everything!  Friends and family have covered their immediate necessities, but we are hoping to help them in the interim while they work to rebuild.

The Galinatos are safe and temporarily staying with friends and family, but they have a long road ahead. Our goal is $20,000 as fast as possible to help with necessities and pay for a rental home in their school district in the meantime.  

Thank you for helping the Galinato's
