Helping the Palmateer Family

$24,439 of $25,000 goal

Created January 7, 2018
On January 6th, Kip Palmateer and kids lost their home in a fire. Their wood stove caught their house on fire and burnt it, and all of their belongings inside it, to the ground. Everyone who was inside the house and all of their animals made it out safely, but with only the clothes on their backs. This was their family home that held inside it many of their memories, and memories for other family members and friends. We are trying to raise money to help them with the costs of replacing what was lost: clothing, school supplies, bedding, food, etc. They are completely starting over as they have lost everything. This will be no cheap task so anything that can be donated would be very helpful!

Thank you everyone for your generous donations! I am deactivating this page now that we have raised such an impressive amount of money to help the Palmateer family!

Just a clarification- Audrey Palmateer has been set up to receive the funds on behalf of Kip since I did not know Kip's contact information at the time, nor if he had access to receive updates from this page via email. Audrey will be withdrawing the money on his behalf but the funds will go to Kip and to their kids. Audrey and Kip will work out how they meet and exchange the money, but it will happen, and the money will be used to help Kip and their kids recover from their loss. I am their niece and simply set up this page in order to try and help out my family, not to withdraw the money myself. Thank you all for your generous donations!

Sizes: One wears a men's size 10 shoe, One is a size 13. Pants: both wear 30" waist. One is 32 length, One is 36” length. They are T-shirt & sweatshirt kind of guys. Men's medium or large.
Kip and kids are in good shape with clothes right now. But it looks like, at this point, they could use more socks and boxers. Also...dog and cat food and cat litter. The animals are being cared for by the kids mom and are safe and sound. Gift cards are ALWAYS helpful. Thank you so much to everyone for helping out. Kip and the kids are saying thank you too. They are in shock (and hell) right now, but appreciate all the love and support. xoxo
