The Martins Need Our Help!

Earl and Kelly Martin and their children lost their home on Wednesday, October 21st to the East Troublsome Fire in Grand County, Colorado.  There is nothing left of their home and they are uncertain how much insurance will cover.  Please consider donating to help them with current and future costs.

My friendship with Kelly started in college at Colorado Christian University where we were roommates and has continued to grow over the years.  Our families have shared graduations, weddings, births and deaths together.  Kelly and Earl often hosted us in their home for 4th of July Celebrations, weekend get-aways and annual firewood cutting excursions.  Our hearts are broken for this beloved family and we wanted a way to help.  Please donate what you can to help the Martins gain their footing and care for the Grand County community around them.

Both Earl and Kelly are leaders in the community.  Earl is the Fire Captain for the Hot Sulfur Springs/Parshall Fire Department and Kelly is the Principal of Granby Elementary School.  They will both insure that funds will be put to good use.
