Jones Family House Fire

On March 16th, 2018, I received a phone call that nearly stopped my heart: My parents and nephew had been devastated due to a house fire. They have lost a great deal of all their possessions but have walked away with their lives and spirits intact. We are eternally grateful that they are safe, but sadly we mourn the loss of our beloved family dog, Hubert.

My parents, Mark and Karin Jones, and my nephew, Romeo, now find themselves displaced with their world upside down. We cannot thank our family and friends enough who have helped secure temporary housing in this time of need. We are now asking for your help today to support our loved ones and help them get back on their feet.

For those of you who live locally and are looking to give in another way, we would gratefully utilize your spare time, knowledge of houses for rent, or items that you would care to donate. I have listed below sizes and ages and a little bit of who they are for reference. If you would like to donate items, or otherwise, please contact the email below to see what is available on the list.

If you are reading this on March 18th, don’t forget to wish my amazing mother a happy birthday. We appreciate and thank you for taking the time to look this over and sharing with your family and friends.
