Helping Houston Family from Fire on Christmas

Click HERE for News Story 

VIA KHOU/HOUSTON — A Houston family of eight is homeless after their home of 25 years burned in an early-morning fire on Christmas Eve.

The fire marshal said two children were taken to the hospital as a precaution, but everyone else is okay. The Grifaldo family said two of their five dogs perished in the smoke.

They said they lost all of their belongings and 25 years of memories in the house fire, including their vehicles and their life savings. They only have the clothes they were wearing as they ran out of the burning home.


We will be collecting NEW items at the Turkey Leg Hut this week, along with using this portal for taking donations for the family directly. Any amount help!
