Sheila, Bob & Family Fund

This past weekend, the lives of Filipowicz family were rocked when a car drove into their home, exploded and set the house on fire. Thankfully, mom (Sheila), dad . (Bob), the three kids and two dogs are all okay. 

As they set about the work of salvaging what they can of their home and property, settling into a temporary living situation and rebuilding their home, they need our help. 
There is no denying that in a situation like this, expenses are going to be huge. So if you are able to donate cash, know that it is going to an incredibly awesome family and will be put to good use. If you are unable to donate cash, or if you prefer to donate specific items, we most certainly welcome that. Clothing is the top priority right now, as they are getting by with the shirts on their backs at the moment. Sizes are below.

Women's size 20 pant/shorts and XL to  XXL tops.
Mens  38 waist and 32 inseam pants and XXL to XXXL tops.
The kids clothes are okay. 

Non-perishable foods, gift certificates, dog food, and anything you can think of that you would need if in their shoes, it's all welcome. 

The Filipowicz family is an incredible one. They are the first people their whenever a loved one is in need. No matter what the ask or how big the ask, you can alwasy count on Bob and Sheila to show up, lend a hand, a hug or a smile, and make yours a better day. Let's help give the same to them in return. 

Thank you in advance for your generosity.
