Support for the Koberlein family

Dear friends, colleagues, and neighbors of the Koberlein family, 

Sunday July 5 around 1 pm, the Koberlein family suffered a major house fire in the Cross Creek Development in Breinigsville, PA.

Thankfully, everyone, including pets are safe. Unfortunately, the house and almost all of the family’s belongings are not salvageable due to damage from the fire, smoke, and water. Their house will need to be completely rebuilt and everything in it replaced.  For now, they are jumping from nearby hotels until their temporary housing is set up.

While the Koberleins navigate this situation, we want to help with the transition by raising funds for clothes and supplies they’ll need in their temporary home, where they will live for 4-5 months while their home is rebuilt. They expect to be in their temporary home by the end of July and will need the funds then.

Please give what you can. If you can’t donate, please share this fundraiser and consider buying or sharing Melissa’s books. You can find them here.

Thank you to everyone who has reached out and offered help, thoughts, and kind words. Please continue to hold this family in your hearts as they move forward through this difficult time.
