I am sure that many of you are aware or have already been part of touching the lives of one of our families impacted by the recent weather. The bad weather led to a devastating situation that left them without their home. I received this blurb and permission from the family to send this message. I am so appreciative to be part of such an amazing community that wraps their arms around those in need. THank you for reaching out to this family in a way that you feel is best! Tara Bailey
"A Tuscany Heights Family suffered a devastating loss early Friday morning. Around 5:45 AM, lightning struck the home of the Castruccio Family, sparking a fire. The parents, youngest daughter and a friend, also a THE student, were home at the time. They acted smartly and bravely, getting out of the house as soon as they saw smoke. All are safe and well. At this point, the house appears to be a total loss. The family would like to express its most sincere gratitude for the outpouring of support from their neighbors, friends, complete strangers, and the Tuscany Heights Elementary family. They are moved beyond words at the generosity and kindness they are experiencing from this community. The family will be staying nearby in a residential home. They are on their way to establishing slowly the "things" lost and recognize the most important thing is that no one was injured in the fire. There is a relief effort underway to help this awesome Tuscany Heights Family get back on its feet at http://www.gofundme.com/subgpw."
