Fund for Kristen Hartler & Children

On May 19, 2015 Doug Van Vleet passed away unexpectedly leaving behind his long time partner Kristen Hartler and their 3 children Evan, Kailey & Ellie.  Word spread quickly as so many people in the community wanted to help this family.  Kristen's friends decided to start a Go Fund Me Account to help assist the family financially.  Kristen is a stay at home Mom and her kids need her there more than ever during this difficult time.  We wanted to raise money for the family so Kristen can focus on her children and not worry about finances as they all mourn this traggic loss. 

Kristen is a wonderful person and is always the first one to help others when they are in need.  Now it is our turn to help her. 

On behalf of the friends of Kristen, Evan, Kailey & Ellie we thank you in advance for your donation.
