Family Needs Home Following Tree Incident

Once again the Nevada County community is rallying around an emergency situation.

The family that lost the house they were renting when a 120 foot pine tree crashed though it on Friday is need of a place to live. The Red Cross has provided emergency housing assistance to the family, but that assistance runs out on Tuesday. Sarah Alderman and Ryan Myers along with four children fortunately were not home when the tree split the house in two pieces rendering it unlivable.  A cat that was missing did turn up during the treefamilyinitial cleanup effort.

A Facebook page has been set up to help focus donations for Sarah, Ryan and the kids. If you have a place the family can move into either temporarily or permanently,  please contact them through the Facebook page, Help Sarah and Ryan. A number of other help requests as well as a donation process are also included on that page.
