GoFundMe for dad and son

After a devastating house fire left a father and son with nothing, there's hope the community can help them pick up the pieces.

Shortly after the July 18 fire destroyed their home in Lumby, a GoFundMe page was set up on behalf of Deva and Zane Warnes.

 "As some of you may have heard or seen in the media, a large house fire broke out in Lumby last week devastating a small community. After a series of explosions, the Warnes house was quickly engulfed in flames and in the end unsalvageable," was stated in the post.

"We are looking to support this family with the basic necessities they need to get themselves back on their feet as they begin the rebuilding process."

The money raised will help buy clothing, bedding, kitchenware, toiletries, furniture and more. 

In the GoFundMe post, businesses were also called on to provide whatever support they could manage.

"If any businesses out there are unable to support this family with a monetary donation, gift cards or store credits of any kind would go along way. If this is something that a business would be interested in, please contact us through this Go Fund Me page.

We know that funds can be tight, therefore any support at all will go a long way to getting this family up and running again.  We thank all of you for your support and understanding as, "Giving isn't just about making a donation but about making a difference!" ~Kathy Calvin
