Fires are devastating. In an unexpected instant, all of your worldly belongings can burn into nothing. And, although these are just “things,” it’s heart-wrenching to watch your favorite possessions become irreparably damaged.
Recently, a family suffered a huge house fire. They brought us bags and boxes of burned and damaged stuffed animals, dolls, clothing, and other items. As we were unpacking the items from the boxes, we were overwhelmed by the burnt smell and sight of these loved belongings. We wore gloves and aprons to avoid covering our hands and clothing in soot and ash.
Margaret’s cleaned and restored over 3,000 items for this family. In the aftermath of such a huge tragedy, it makes us feel good to return these things in good condition. It’s one less heartache this family has to endure.
