A fire took the home of a Quadra family on Tuesday. They were renting the trailer at Jerry Benner's place, and they have 4 kids - one son of 8 or 9, two boys, aged 4 & 5, and one girl, aged 2 1/2.

The school is apparently kindly acting as a collection point, as is Isletech. Call Josie at the school or Mel Zylstra at the garage for updated info.

You can also check out the Facebook page (see link at bottom of page) set up to support this family. From the discussion on that page you should be able to glean updates and information about what is needed.

Islanders are already responding at a fantastic rate, so please do check before dropping off as we do not want to overwhelm these folks. Some storage is apparently available (thanks, Mitch and Mel) but the family has no place to live as yet....anyone out there who can help with that too?

Thanks, Quadra!
