House fire - Schoepe Family

On July 19th,  an Electrical fire started in the ceiling of Tony and Sharon's home.  Tony and Sharon were able to get the children, and pets out of the home safely.

With the quick response of the Beresford Fire Department, they were able to break holes into the ceiling and reach the area of the fire before the whole structure became engulfed.  Unfortunately, water damage ruined much of their belongings.

As of now, the home is unlivable. The ceiling will need to be completely replaced, as well as the entire electrical system.
The family did not have renters insurance.

Tony is unemployed at this time and is working on  disability. Their youngest daughter Kayleigh Jo has Down Syndrome.
Both children are homeschooled.

We are asking for monetary donations at this time to help rent a U-Haul, and Storage Unit, to get the Schoepe family out to Spearfish SD where they  will be staying with his Sister, Bobbie Jo and her family.  All money raised will go towards moving expenses as well as clothes and food  until they are able to find a new home.

They will also need household items, but until they are able to assess all that was lost, we are unable to list those things at this time.

The Church has placed them in a local hotel for the next 2 days, so time is of the essense.

Any help would be appreciated at this time, and we ask that you please share our GoFundMe page.

Thank you and God Bless,
The Schoepe & Gardella Family
