 HOMER GLEN, IL

On December 15th, Ed Kolpacki & his daughter Meg were seriously injured in a home explosion due to a gas leak in the area.  

Their home and all of their belongings are a total loss. 

Residents have been inquiring as to how they can help the family, so I set up this page on behalf of the Village of Homer Glen. 

All proceeds will go directly to the Kolpacki family and the funds will be used to help assist in their recovery from this tragedy.

Any questions can be directed to the Village of Homer Glen at 708-301-0632.

Thank you very much for your concern and generosity in helping the Kolpacki family in their time of need. 

Sincerely,
Brian Burian
Trustee, Village of Homer Glen

Ruth Kolpacki asked us to post this thank you on behalf of the entire Kolpacki family:

Please accept our sincerest thanks for the love, support and prayers you have given us. We are truly blessed to live in the Homer Glen community. We cannot thank you enough for the continued prayers and outpouring of love we have received from our community, our church parish, friends, family, neighbors, friends of friends, and anonymous friends who just want to help. It is very humbling having so many people and groups caring for us. It gives us hope and the determination to return to our beloved community that we call home.

Thank you again!

I am so heartbroken for this family. I personally know the agony of a third degree burn. I send all my thoughts and will donate ASAP. They have years of pain and recovery ahead. Nicor needs to be held accountable. This has become a pattern for them.

Sara Goad, yes, they had insurance but they have lost EVERYTHING. Hopefully between this communities amazing caring spirit and this gofundme page Ruth, Ed and Megan can recover quickly and try to get life back to somewhat of normalcy.

I was wondering if there has been any update on their condition. My heart bleeds for them. I was in a house fire almost two years ago come Jan 7. I spent a long time at Loyola and am still recovering, but very lucky to be here. Does anyone know how they are doing?
