On Thursday - August 30th, the DiMellio family lost everything they own in an unexpected and horrific house fire. The family includes Anthony and Ava, Alexandria, and her daughter, Shelby. They lost 3 dogs and a cat - who gave their lives by bringing attention to the emergency, but were unable to be rescued.
The home was completely engulfed in flames within a matter of moments, with smoke plums that could be seen 2 from two towns away, leaving everything inside completely unsalvageable.
Starting with nothing is a grueling process for adults, but there is also a 3-year-old granddaughter Shelby - who will be unable to comprehend that her home, clothes, toys, hygienic supplies - and everything that is familar to her is now gone.
Even it is just enough to cover the cost of a simple toothbrush, a piece of clothing for a toddler, or a down-payment for a night at a hotel. Please find it in your heart to give what you can to help this family bounce back from a travesty that could happen to anyone. For a the price of a single cup of coffee, you could buy a sundress for a 3-year-old girl in need.
You have the ability to help turn this devastating situation a salvageable one, at this moment. No amount is too small to go unappreciated. Please help us get this family back on their feet!
