Michelle's Restart Fund!

An unfortunate turn of events happened to a dear friend and co-worker of ours on Wednesday November 29th.  Michelle, her husband Justin, and her step-daughter Stella lost their home and personal belongings in a fire. What is most important to note is that no one was home or hurt in the fire, we are very thankful for that. Michelle and Justin had been renting this home for a short time, in preparation of moving into a home of their own.  All of their personal belongings were inside and it is uncertain, at this time, if anything will be salvageable. Imagine starting over, this is a very difficult time for their family.  Everything from clothes, toiletries, everyday items, furniture, decorations, etc needs to be replaced - while also finding a place to stay.  (look around the room you're in and imagine having to repurchase just what is in front of you!) This fund is a kick off to help "RESTART" and get the essentials, while they figure out next steps and believe me every little bit helps and is much appreciated.   We are wishing their family warm thoughts and wishes during this difficult time and know better days are ahead.    We have started a wish list of basic items that we will deliver to her as they come in, if you would like to donate a different way.
