Today is March 4th, 2017 and today is also the day that The Harvester caught on fire. I'm going to drive by later tonight but I think its a total loss..
The good thing is that everyone made it out okay. The bad thing is that that entire family is out of a home and buisness. I'm starting this to let everyone in the community, such as myself, help out the family. This family has done so much for myself and the surrounding community. There is so much love surrounding The Harvester.
My name is Kristie McClung and I have worked for the family for just about a year. I love this family more then anything. I hope ing this helps then a little.
As I'm sure they do have insurance to cover the building and maybe even some of the belongings, it's not going to cover everything. This family has spent so so so many years in this home. I can't begin to imagine. Thank you.

WE MADE OUR GOAL, THANK YOU FOR EVERYONE WHO DONATED, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!! There's been a ton of donations, so many the legion had to stop accepting them for a period of time. There's been so much love surrounding these families, let's keep showing them support. If everyone can share this with their friends, and ask their friends to share it, we can get their stories out there.

Post from Climax Legion.
As everyone is aware The Harvester caught on fire this morning and is a total loss. The Smith's are all safe (including tenant)and are extremely grateful to all the firefighters and multiple fire departments that responded. The area at this time is still limited road access as departments still on scene working. Everyone has been asking about where they can donate. We will have a drop off of clothing up at the Climax Scotts American Legion at 6101 S. 44th St. We will also be taking monetary donations to assist the family. We need some basics to get them through the next few days.
The family clothing sizes are as follows:
Mom- Shoes size 10-11, Womens Shirt XL, Pants 10-12
Dad- Shoes size 12, Shirt Mens XL, Mens Pants 36
Daughter- Shoe Size 10-12, Womens Shirt Size M, Pants 5-6, Athletic Pants Size Large
Daughter- Girls Shoe Size 4, Shirts Size Small, Pants Girls 14-16
Dog- Dish Bowls, Leash, Toys, Treats

Thank you to everyone, every single person whither its just a share, your time spent with the family, a donation on this gofund me page, or even if you just offered a blanket, or your phone number, a hug in the time of need, anything. It's not about how much or what you give. It's about a community coming together. Sharing the heartache, letting the family know you are there for them. It doesn't matter how much you give or what, anywhere from a hug to $1, an offer of a place to stay to $600. It does not matter. I love this family, Im sure a million others do, too. This is just my way to help out. Thank you again.

Hi all! We have received an abundance of clothing donations in the last 24 hrs and at the Legion and everyone is so appreciative beyond words! We are stopping clothing donations for a few days. We think we have covered all the basic needs for a few days and will be delivering another batch tomorrow. They have very limited space at thr hotel for the Smith's and the tennant Cathy and we waiting to hear next steps as to where they both will go after being at the hotels this week. Monetary donations are great because there are tons of other things that were lost and needed for daily living for the Smith's and Cathy and pets. Thank you to everyone who is going to donate and those who have already donated too! This means the world to them. Will keep everyone posted as we learn more ;)
