The Heinz Family would like to thank the individuals who provided help to us due to our house fire. Complete strangers offered their help by providing a gift certificate to Laurer's and offering a place to stay. Evelyn McKenny, our realtor, promptly found us a place to stay and associates at various stores have lended their hand in various ways to help us out. Associates at Office Depot and Sears were very accomodating and helpful. Friends who took us to the store to get things for night and took us in for the week until we found a temporary place to stay to great bosses that made sure we were taken care of. All of these small actions that people took to help us get through were greatly needed and appreciated!

In a time of need, it should be noted that people need action more than kind words or offers of help. In a time of disaster, people need action! Thank you to the strangers and friends in our life that provided the actions needed to assist us during this difficult time.

Nationwide also provided assistance to this point with various companies to incude South River Restoration and CRDN which have been great and are highly recommended. Red Cross also provided assistance the night of the fire and provided funds and toiletries to assist us for the night.

This comment I am sure does not include all those that have helped but Thank You to those that did take actin to help us and you know who you are.
There are no words to describe what this has been like. There is no help that is too small or not appreciated. A hot meal, a gift card, or some used clothes. Give anything you can to someone in this circumstance as you never know if you will need the favor returned.

Thank you for everyone that has been there for us!

I am so sorry for this tragedy. Did they find the cause of the fire yet?
