Jeff & Kris Kidder - Xmas eve fire

$765 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 11 people in 14 months
Around 11PM on Christmas Eve. 2016, Jeff & Kris Kidder's house burned out while they were spending the evening with a neighbor family. 

The Kidders aren't simply longtime residents, they are pillars of our local community. This is a tragic loss, all the more bitter due to the time of year. 

They will need extra funds to help them secure temporary accomodations while decisions are made as to whether or not the home can be salvaged. 

If you have a few spare bucks, please think about kicking some in. I set the request at $50K, but even 10% of that would be extremely helpful.

Hello Friends,

This campaign has slowed significantly in the last couple of weeks, while the previous campaign (established to assist medical bills) has easily exceeded all goals. What a tremendous and inspiring outpouring of generosity we have all witnessed!

At this time, I have decided to close-out this campaign and forward the funds to the Kidder family. In addition to the $765 raised on-line, there was another $100 anonymous donation via mail - so the total raised is $865 prior to fees.

On behalf of the Kidder family and so many caring friends & neighbors, please accept our deep appreciation for everyone who has contributed to the campaign, in any way.

All our best,
Bill Layer & Deborah Dotson

Quick Update: When I created this campaign on the evening of the house fire, I was completely unaware of the previous 'Support' campaign which had been started a couple of months prior. In any case, please know that your donations are going to the same folks no matter which campaign you may contribute to.

Donations to this campaign have slowed in the last days, and I may close it in the near future - as the Support fund continues to garner the majority of contributions, thanks to significant exposure on local media.

My sincere thanks to everyone who has chipped in on this campaign - almost $900.00 has been raised as of this writing, and that's nothing but good news for a very deserving family.

Happy New Years to all!
