Milliken House Fire in Tofino Fund

$14,365 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 93 people in 12 months
Created December 5, 2017
In the early hours of Monday, December 4th, 2017 Calvin, Krystal and Berlin Milliken lost their home and vehicle due to a fire. As you can imagine loosing your home and personal belongings is devastating.

Thankfully they do have insurance but as you know that takes time an they will not recover everything they have lost. This family is feeling very overwhelmed. Calvin and Krystal have lived and worked in Tofino for 10 years and Berlin is in grade 4 at the local school. 

In addition to dontating funds this family is looking for somewhere to live in Tofino. They need a home to rent for up to 8 months. 

I am asking for your help and donations to assist this Tofino family through this difficult time and help them rebuild their lives.

Words don’t seem adequate when it comes to thanking you, but wrapped up in these words are love and gratitude beyond measure.

We want to thank everyone from the very depths of our hearts. You have fed us, sent us donations, helped us find a place to live, given us furniture, sent gifts of comfort and given generously to help us after the fire.

Our family is astounded by the generosity of the community. We felt your love and concern for our family. The outpouring of donations has helped to lift many burdens off of us.

We would like to thank everyone who donated funds to the Tofino Co-op, Coastal Credit Union and the Go Fund Me Campaign.There are too many names to list but we want you to know we are very thankful for your support and kinds words. We would also like to thank all the local businesses and community members who donated furniture, bikes, clothes, books and lifted us up when we really needed your help. If we have forgotten anyone on this list, we apologize!

With Gratitude,

Calvin, Krystal and Berlin
