Nicole and Colby House Fire Fund

Nicole, Colby, and their family suffered a devastating tragedy on March 26th, 2016 when their home and all of their belongings were lost in a house fire. As we all know an incident like this takes a tremendous tole on a family emotionally and physically. Their 5 boys (ages 13 yoa,11 yoa, 6 yoa, 5 yoa, and 9 months old) lost everything. The only items they currently possess are the clothes they were wearing when they fled from their home. Nicole and Colby also lost everything in the fire which may possibly include their vehicle which was parked in the garage. I have set up this account in hope that we can come together as a community and help this family begin to replace and rebuild everything that was lost.
Thankfully everyone in the family is safe and unharmed from the fire, but the family pet was unable to be rescued. The sheer amount of loss this family has sustained just in possessions which can never be replaced and the stress of not knowing what to expect each day as they attempt to recover from this gives us an opportunity to at least help relieve some of the financial worries/stress. If you are able to and willing please donate anything you can to help meet the goal of $5,000.00. Hopefully we can meet and surpass this goal. Every donation is greatly appreciated and please keep Nicole, Colby, and the boys in your thoughts and prayers.
