Please help a local family displaced by fire


A local family we serve was a victim of a fire this week, and they lost pretty much everything they own. In addition, their medically fragile newborn son remains in the hospital and isn't stable enough to bring home yet. Now they are faced with the task of not only finding a home, but filling it with necessities to take care of themselves and their son.

Their current situation is very serious and they really need some help. Here is a link to the updated story that was shown on King 5 News.
