Today, March 3, life-long residents of Cavendish, Martha and Mitchell Benoit lost their garage and most of their home to a fire. What started in the garage, quickly swept in to their home. They have lost everything. Martha and Mitchell have been huge supporters of Cavendish Elementary School and of the town for many years. They finally recovered from the damages of Tropical Storm Irene, and are now strapped with this.
While Mitchell and Martha do have homeowner's insurance, we all know that this rarely covers what the family will need and takes a really long time to receive any sort of financial support.
One of the reasons people live in a small community are in times like this community members can rally together and support each other in their darkest of hours.
Donations from this fund will go directly to the family, and be accessible to them for things they need in the immediate future.
Thank you for your generosity and for making a difference in our community.
