Perkins Family Fire Relief Fund

Just after 1:30am on January 3, 2018 a chimney fire ripped through Karen Perkins' home in Durango, CO . Thankfully everyone inside, including her visiting children and all the dogs, were able to escape without injury. They watched from  the roadside as the fire engulfed the family home. All that was left when the firefighters tamed the flames were ashes.

We can't help Karen, her kids or their family replace the decades worth of memories that happened in their home- birthday parties, anniversaries, Christmas celebrations and even the wedding of Marlayna and Lucas Martinez, but we can help them start rebuilding bit by bit.

Please give what you can to help Karen and all involved in this unexpected tragedy begin to rebuild and start making new memories in a new home.
