Ron and Andrea Brown

As many Bend folks saw today either on the news or up close... there was a shop fire and unfortunately, it was our dear friend’s Ron and Andrea Brown. They own 2 businesses... Ron is an incredibly unique, General Contractor, specializing in reclaimed wood company “The Finisher”- and the other is a local favorite food cart, “Bruneau’s South Philly Cuisine”... Every single item that goes into their businesses is now gone. It is estimated that the devastation is around $100,000. The most upsetting part of all, is that NOTHING will he covered by insurance. Rental insurance and  extra insurance coverage for their businesses that would have covered personal loss, wasn’t affordable for them when they started the businesses 5 years ago...  Business picked up the last several years, but they had forgotten to revisit the insurance to make sure it would cover personal loss, therefore- nothing will be covered... Would you please come alongside this precious family and consider giving to them, so they can rebuild their businesses? And as a side note, after January, they have to be out of their home and with this huge hit, it makes it almost impossible to have a home to move into.  They just found out that they will not have power to their home, because the fire took out the main power line.  They have been trying to buy a home, but will no longer have the funds. Thank you in advance for your generosity and love toward Ron, Andrea and Hunter.
