Help Rebuild the Smalley's Bridge

$10,276 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 37 people in 12 months
The rain on August 14th flooded many areas and caused a lot of devastation to local friends and family. Our parent's, Frank and Mary Smalley had the flood waters wash out their bridge and driveway, which is the only way to get to their house. This is a big concern for their safety and it could take weeks or longer to fix.  For now then they've been walking across the stream and debris, with cars on each side but that is also dangerous.

The cost to repair is considerable and not covered by insurance. We are exploring various options for fixing the bridge and driveway including grants and creative solutions. It is unlikely that FEMA money will be available since it's on private property. 

We are raising money here to help offset some of the costs. The exact amount isn't known yet but it will be in the tens of thousands. 

Please consider giving to help one of the most generous and humble couples around. Share the word and thank you in advance!

~ The Smalley and Reimer Families

Just a quick update to let everyone know that because of your donations the Smalleys have a bridge!

There is still more work (and money) needed, such as, a railing, repairing the walls, and concrete to secure it.

Thanks so much from all of us!

The Town of Hector has removed 25 dump truck loads of gravel free of charge. They left about 15 loads that will be used to cover the pipe once it's in place.

More pictures of the damaged drain pipe that needs to be replaced and tonnes of gravel that needs to be removed. A replacement pipe has been ordered which costs around $5000 plus labor and machinery to put it in place.

Here are some more pictures of the damage. It's hard to tell from these but it is going to be a very big job to restore it to what it was.

Thank you to all who have donated and shared this. Please keep sharing it to expand the reach and help Frank and Mary repair their bridge.
