Gibbons House Fire Relief Fund

$8,620 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 99 people in 43 months


In the early hours of Thursday, July 23, a fire broke out and overtook three homes in the NE Seattle neighborhood of Maple Leaf. One of the homes belonged to one of our very own St. Catherine's families, the Gibbons Family.

Gratefully, all the members of the family and their beloved dog and pet lizard made it out safely, but their family's home has been completely destroyed. The Gibbons Family left with literally nothing more than the clothes they wore when they left the house. Between the fire and water damage, not much has been salvageable.

With all of the offers for help, we felt that a focused effort, such as a GoFundMe page, would be the most efficient way for people to help the Gibbons Family, while allowing the family to use the resources in whatever ways suit their particular needs. The hope is that all the money raised by various members of our generous communities will help ease the burden for the Gibbons family as they work on rebuilding their lives after the fire. The logistics of this enormous loss are unfathomable, and while the arson and insurance investigators sort out the details, the Gibbons still need to move forward with their lives. We can help make that easier.

Time and time again we have had the privilege of watching our amazing communities (St. Catherine, Maple Leaf, etc.) rally around our beloved friends and neighbors. Therefore, we ask you to kindly consider rallying around the Gibbons Family (Tom, Tawnyel, Tommy, Gracie, and Kathryn) with your prayers and generosity to help them in this unimaginable time of need.

Thank you for your consideration. The Gibbons Family will be deeply appreciative of any assistance.
