Raymond/Newell Fire Relief Fund

Hi there everyone. Thanks for clicking and wanting to know more about what happened and what we are trying to raise money for. As you may know we had a fire at my family's house. It took out the shed and garage they had. In there we have multiple vehicles and more tools then I know what to do with. The fire also affect the back corner of the house causing damage to the electrical meter and cable lines going into the house. Thankfully the house wasn't that badly affected. I am hoping to raise money to help cover the cost of the electrician that is coming to do the repairs of the wiring so that my family can go back to living in the house. My mother and Step-father are currently staying at a hotel and my grandmother is staying with my wife and I. We are also hoping to be able to get a 14-20 cubic yard dumpster to dispose of all of the damaged remains in the garage. The fire department also broke a window and caused some damage to the attic access. Thankfully the Red Cross has helped with some finances to allow my mother and step father to stay at the hotel but we don’t have long before that money runs out. We are a family that normally wouldn't ask for financial
help but in this case it was so sudden and unexpected we don't have the means to tackle all of this, so any and all help is  greatly appreciated. 

The dumpster is $666.49 for five days and two tons of material.

The Electrician has quoted me anywhere from $500 to $1000 dollars just to get the power back on.

I haven’t the slightest idea how much the window repair and replacement will cost.

Thanks to everyone who has stepped up and offered help. We are so lucky to have such an amazing group of family and friends to help us. We need to rasie this money as quicly as we can!

Let’s make this happen!

All the best,
Allen Raymond
