Oregon Fire Fund for Mountain View Estates

During difficult times like these, we're all suffering in different ways. Unfortunately some are being affected more than others and most are suffering silently. I have never posted a GoFundMe prior to this, however, this one hits close to home. A family that I have known since I was 5 years old has been hit by the Oregon wildfires. My childhood best friend Ben’s father in law lost all of his belongings on the 9th of September. He is currently staying with Ben and many others are having to do the same with their families. I'm asking that you take a moment and consider everything we have all endured this year. Be thankful if you still have your family and be thankful if you have your home. I would never wish this upon anyone. If you have the ability during these trying times to donate, no matter the amount, I would be so thankful. The Dodge family is one of the most compassionate, humble, and supportive families I know. They would do anything they could to help others in need. I just want to do the same for the Mountain View Estates Community. I know that every bit will help him and other families with basic necessities. I appreciate if you took the time to read through this.
