Many have already heard about the situation with the Kuenzi family. Peter and Wendy Kuenzi of Stayton lost their home to a fire this past Sunday. The house is a total loss, not much is salvageable. They are currently staying in a motel with their 10 children.
The family also lost one of their young daughters just a couple of years ago. This fire has been yet another devastating blow to the family.
This past Tuesday our council voted to contribute $1,500 from our Community Service fund to the family. We know that many other members of our community have chipped in to help in a variety of ways. Thanks to Brothers Tom Miller and John King for bringing this to our council’s attention.[Updated Jan 16, 2:34pm] In addition, a Brother Knight, who wishes to remain anonymous, has contributed an additional $5,000, which will be delivered to the family later today.
Please consider a personal contribution
Peter Kuenzi’s employer, Pratum Co-Op, contributed several thousand dollars to help the family. They have also started a gofundme page. Here is the link to their facebook page, and a direct link to their gofundme page. You can also reach the family by mail at:
