New furnace for the McGuire family

The McGuire family's furnace recently started having issues and needs to be replaced before winter.  Recent serious medical issues for both Tim and Allie have left them with a large amount of medical debt and Allie is currently on disability as she continues to recover from a near deadly case of West Nile virus, breast cancer and an autoimmune disorder.  Tim is having trouble staying gainfully employed because of chronic back issues, as he also continues to recover from cancer, but the need to provide for their two adopted daughters continues to be their main focus and source of strength.  Tim has also been an integral part of the launch and ongoing operation of Spark Makerspace over the past few years as he has given generously of his time, tools and experience in countless areas.

The McGuires are without funds for a new furnace and winter is quickly approaching. Including installation the cost of a new furnace is estimated to be $5000.00.  Any amount that you can contribute towards this would be greatly appreciated.
