Christmas Morning House Fire

$5,950 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 60 people in 1 month
Created December 25, 2017
On Christmas morning, Tony Contreras, his sister, and his three children Zach (8), Sophia (11), and Kaitlynn (16) woke to a fire spreading throughout their house. Everybody was able to evacuate safely, but the house is a total loss.   Everything that didn't burn was damaged by smoke and water.

If you can provide any little bit to help Tony and his children with basic needs while while they try to rebuild their lives from this tragedy, it would be greatly appreciated.   Every little bit helps.

I spoke with Tony briefly today. He is working out of state. He is overwhelmed with the generosity of friends, family, and strangers. Thank you all SO VERY MUCH. We set up the account so he can withdrawal the funds directly into his bank. The amounts raised so far are earmarked for finding a new home. Again, thank you so much.

There is still a long way to go. The kids lost all their clothes, dressers, beds, couches, chairs, washer and dryer and other appliances. Tony and his family are starting over from absolutely nothing. They will still need more help over the next several weeks. Please keep them in your prayers.

Thank you again for your generosity. We still need more, but I think the family is starting to feel a little relief from all the support.

The fire apparently started in the outbuilding that was being used as an office. It quickly spread through the carport/garage and into the main house. About half of the house still stands, but everything was damaged by smoke and water.

The kids are currently staying with their grandparents. It will be difficult when school starts back up, as shuttling the children off to different schools each morning will be a hassle. The family is doing well and appreciates all the support.
