Lemson Family Fire Relief

In the early morning of Monday, March 26, 2018, a fire caused extensive damage to the home of the Lemson family in Wyoming, Michigan. Located in the 4600 block of Burlingame, the home has been declared a total loss. The family, including 4 year-old Olivia, woke to smoke detectors and were able to escape safely despite the smoke. Olivia was treated by paramedics at the scene for possible smoke inhalation, but is okay. The cause of the fire has yet to be determined. It appears to have started outside on the porch before it spread into the house and entered the attic. It does not appear to be suspicious. 

 Currently, there are many immediate needs: Personal Items, Clothing, Supplies, and so much more for Mandy, Scott, and Olivia (age 4). Gift Cards to help with Food and Gas and other immediate necessities/supplies. (Their cars were not damaged in the fire). Toys/activities/crafts for Olivia as she deals with the loss of her home. We want to support the Lemson family in the days and weeks ahead as they recover. Your donation will be of great help as they take steps to rebuild their lives.Their needs will be ever-changing as they determine their future, some things are unclear at this moment - as you can imagine, they are shocked and devastated at this time, and it will take awhile to sort out all the details. Your support is very much appreciated, thank you.
