Hubbard Family Fire

Last night, a fire tore through Betsy and Shawn Hubbard's house. Thankfully, Betsy, Shawn, and their children were able to escape unharmed. However, the fire destroyed half of their home. The parts of their home that weren't consumed by the flames suffered extensive smoke damage. As a result, the Hubbards will need to replace their kitchen, all of their furniture, clothing, and the other necessities of daily life.

It will cost a lot to replace the items ruined by the fire and smoke. While the Hubbards are working with the Red Cross and their insurance company, I would like to help them raise money for things that won't be covered by insurance.

Betsy and Shawn are dedicated educators. I have known Betsy personally for several years. She has been a co-author of Two Writing Teachers, a not-for-profit blog devoted to the teaching of writing, since 2013. She's one of those salt of the earth people who works tirelessly to make the world a better place for kids.  It is my hope that this fundraising campaign will bring together the Hubbards' local community, as well as the literacy community Betsy is part of, to help the Hubbards rebuild their home in the wake of the fire.

Good afternoon! I wanted to provide you with an update about the Hubbards.

Right now, the family is still living in a hotel. They're working with their insurance company to find a rental home. They are hoping to be out of the hotel and into a more permanent living situation by next week. In addition, they hope to be back in their house six months from now.

Thank you for your kindness.

My best,
Stacey Shubitz
