At 12:30a.m. Thursday morning, a fire broke out in my sister-in-law's home.  She and three of their 9 children made it out, but are in the hospital.  Her husband rushed home from work as soon as he heard.  Her other six children did not make it out of the home.  Any help you can provide will go a long way to easing the financial burden they will face.

UPDATE:  Thank you everyone for the outpouring of support and financial donations.  We are overwhelmed with requests for clothing sizes, household needs, etc., at this time.  I had all intentions of responding to everyone, but it has become unwieldy.  Please know that the family appreciates the donation offers.

Please like the Love for the Malones Facebook page for updates on fundraising events throughout the community:

The continued outpouring of love and support has been amazing! There are a lot of things in the works to assist and support Katie and Bill, and as those things are finalized, they will be posted here and the Love for the Malones facebook page.

I did want to share that Katie has been released from the hospital and is now at home with Bill and the kids. Thank you to everyone for the continued thoughts, prayers, messages, and donations to the Malones. It is appreciated more than words can express!

I wanted to provide an update for those of you who have been asking. While Katie is still in critical condition, she is alert and able to communicate. My niece and nephew are still hospitalized but improving every day. Please continue to keep them in your thoughts and prayers. My 8 year old niece is doing well and is with her grandparents.

The family is working with a financial planner from Morgan Stanley to ensure the funds will provide the best long-term benefit to the family. We will be able to provide on Tuesday an address so that anyone interested can send donations directly to Morgan Stanley.

We have received some private messages regarding additional fundraising. If you own a business or restaurant and would like to sponsor a fundraiser, please contact us at
