The Gilheany fire fund

My mom and dad's home just recently caught fire here in Eagle River. The fire department was there within minutes but the home, or whats left is in shambles. The top floor, consisting of the deck, living room, kitchen, one bath and large bedroom is not salvagable. My dad is super stubborn and up until recently when a contractor told him he'd have to, has refused to leave the home. Unfortunately their insurance doesn't cover any personal belongings or temporary housing while their home is gutted and put back together. The demo and rebuild has been estimated at 9 months to a year. This puts my dad, mom, younger sister (7months pregnant), their dog Wuf and two cats in a bind, especially with winter sneaking up on us. Any of the funds raised here will go directly to putting them up in a safe place where they can start over, destress and be comfortable. Our family would be super grateful for anything you can spare.
