Joslin Family House Fire Fund

In the evening of February 22nd, a fire broke out in the home of the Joslin family, causing extensive damage to the house, damaging or destroying clothing, furniture, and personal items. While we are very thankful that DJ, Lizz, and the their two kids are okay, tragically their dogs, Priscilla and Pretzel, and their cat, Chirry, were taken by the fire.

The family has insurance which will eventually help, however it could be a while before that happens. They will need clothing, temporary housing, and a lot of the day to day items we take for granted that were lost in the fire. 

All donations will be provided to the Joslins to help them get back on their feet and rebuild. If you cannot donate money, the family could also use clothing and essential items, a list of which we'll try to post soon.

Please share with anyone that can help this wonderful family.
