Jones' House Fire

Dear friends, 
First, and most importantly, Jennifer Jones, her husband Steve, and son are all fine.

Second: it is with great sadness that we share on their behalf that due to an unfortunate accident in the adjoining townhome yesterday, their house caught fire and they have lost much of the life we’ve built for ourselves over the years.  It’s going to be a long road ahead as we figure out what is salvageable and what just needs to go.

The fire came from the unit next door and into their attic. Their sprinkler system didn’t pop because the fire didn’t make it into our actual living space, but the smoke and water damage are thorough. Our bedrooms are entirely gone, as are all of their son's toys. They are fortunate that they will be able to salvage many things, but they have lost over 70% of their belongings and have a long road ahead.

So very many of you have graciously asked how you can help Jennifer & family.  Right now they aren't sure so have asked for Gift Cards are the most helpful, as it's difficult to mail these as they have no set address.  We have created this GoFundMe Page as an easier way to donate so that they can at their discretion use the funds when they need for what they need.

We thank you in advance, all funds donated will go directly to Jennifer, Steve & their son.
