Helping the Palmateer Family

On January 6th, Kip Palmateer and kids lost their home in a fire. Their wood stove caught their house on fire and burnt it, and all of their belongings inside it, to the ground. Everyone who was inside the house and all of their animals made it out safely, but with only the clothes on their backs. This was their family home that held inside it many of their memories, and memories for other family members and friends. We are trying to raise money to help them with the costs of replacing what was lost: clothing, school supplies, bedding, food, etc. They are completely starting over as they have lost everything. This will be no cheap task so anything that can be donated would be very helpful!
