Homer Glen Home Explosion Fund

On December 15th, Ed Kolpacki & his daughter Meg were seriously injured in a home explosion due to a gas leak in the area.  

Their home and all of their belongings are a total loss. 

Residents have been inquiring as to how they can help the family, so I set up this page on behalf of the Village of Homer Glen. 

All proceeds will go directly to the Kolpacki family and the funds will be used to help assist in their recovery from this tragedy.

Any questions can be directed to the Village of Homer Glen at 708-301-0632.

Thank you very much for your concern and generosity in helping the Kolpacki family in their time of need. 

Brian Burian
Trustee, Village of Homer Glen
