House Fire

I am raising money for the Ruff family. John and Janine along with their children survived a horrible house fire late last night. By the grace of God and the actions of a nearby neighbor they made it out alive. The family was sleeping when the fire started. They were awakened to a neighbor banging on the door. She is truly a angel. She was screaming for them to get out! With no time to spare they ran out the front door. Thankfully no one was hurt. They left with only the clothes on their back. Both of the family's vehicles were burned in the fire. This family is always putting others first. They are so humble and would never ask for a hand out. I have started this account to help the family get food, clothing and the personal items they need. Also to show them how much the community cares for them. Now it's our turn to repay the love and kindness they have always shared with others!
