The Story

Hi all, 

If you haven't already heard, we lost our family home tonight. It has been our home since 1996. Although it wasn't the best house, it was a place for us to come home to, a place for us to share time with the family, and a place full of memories. We are very fortunate that everyone is safe and no one got hurt. The full extent of the damage is not too clear yet, but as of now it seems the entire house and all of its contents have been lost. 

If you'd like to donate here, the money will go to my family to replace clothes and hygiene products, for starters, and to hep my parents and sister get by until they get a new home. As this just happened tonight, we are still in shock. Anything helps.

If you can't donate, but want to help, I'll try to let you know how later on. I'm still trying to figure how I can help at this point. Stop by the family restaurant in Coon Rapids if you want to see my parents since they both work there full-time.

Thank you for all your prayers and support during this tough time.

Amber Bates
