Meyer Family House Fire Fund

On January 1, 2018 a fire broke out in the garage of my brother George and his wife Susan's home in Kauakauna, Wisconsin. The fire destroyed the entire garage,  destroyed Susan's car, and spread to the home.  At least one bedroom and a room are lost, many personal possessions damaged or destroyed,  and there is extensive damage to the exterior.  They are still assessing the extent of the damage, and do not know if the home can be repaired or will be a loss. The home is currently uninhabitable and they have  been displaced.  Thankfully both George and Susan, and their pets Odessa the puppy and Penn Penn the tortoise are safe. 

This is George and Susan's first home. George is a US Navy Veteran, and they do not have any family physically close by to help them. Please help however you can and share this message! I will post updates as they are available.  Thank you and God Bless.
