Thank you all for your patience during this difficult time. Grandpa's (Marg's Father) death not a week after their devastating house fire really added heavy stress to our family. Grandpa's funeral was beautiful, and may he rest in peace; he will be greatly missed.
Update on Marg & Jim's progress: so many kind and generous folks have given donations, funding, and/or their precious time to help with the disaster relief. The lot was cleared off over the course of a few weeks, and a new house has been secured for the lot. We are grateful to their bank that their mortgage was approved!
Christina and other friends and family worked their magic with physical donation efforts, and secured numerous types of items including but not limited to: bedding, furniture, clothing, kitchen items, gift cards, electronics, etc (both old and new). We are eternally grateful to all of the donors (including those of time and manual labor)!
This fundraiser will be closed at the end of January, to tie up our funding efforts. Jim & Marge have a long way to go still in rebuilding their lives, and it will take many years before they have replaced the needs and comforts of their former home and belongings.
We are so thankful that people are continuing to share this fundraiser, and ask that you continue to do so until the end of January. Thank you all for your support!
