McDowell Family Fire Recovery Fund

On Tuesday,  December 1, a fire ravaged a large portion of my sister Kim and niece Kaley's home in Holyoke. Kaley was in the house alone at the time with their dog Gibson and navigated the strong smoke and flames of the fire to make it safely outside of the home with Gibson. My family has experienced major damage to their home and loss of personal items. This home is very special to them as it is the dream home that they purchased when their beloved father and husband, Wade McDowell was alive. Thankfully, the home, although damaged will be able to be repaired and in time Kaley and Kim will be able to move back into their home. I'm asking for any who feel so moved to offer a small donation to assist them in their time of need and transition. We are most grateful. Thank you to all the loved ones and friends who have reached out to myself to check on them. There has been an overwhelming amount of calls and texts and I'm doing what I can to assist. This is a major ordeal and something no one should have to ever experience. Thank you all.
