Koven Family Wildfire Relief

Thanks for reading my post. I am Shannon Ross from Columbia, MD starting a campaign as a way for friends and co-workers to help our friend Ryan and his family. 

My friend and co-worker Ryan Koven was visiting his family home in Northern California when a firefighter kicked in their door to evacuate them minutes before the wildfire engulfed their home. Thankfully everyone is safe. They are in a shelter and as you can imagine will need some support. We all know that insurance and government does not cover all that is lost. I cannot imagine coming back to the picture shown and only seeing a few concrete remnants of my home. All was lost. 
I have started this campaign to help raise money that will aid in every day needs like food, clothing, shelter, and more. The costs are unknown but will go on for some time until a more permeant place of residence can be established. 

Thank you for donating!
