Morgan family thanks community for its help after their house fire

Gary, Mel, Jeremey, Brittany, K.C. and Taylor Morgan, Silverthorne

The Morgans are alive and well, thanks to so many wonderful people in Summit County.

The kindness shown to our family has been amazing and humbling. It reminds us that the world is not as callous as we think.

We want to thank each and every one of you for your thoughts, prayers, time given, calls and items donated to make us a functional family again.

Please know in our hearts each and every one of you will have a special place. Everything done has been appreciated, from getting mattresses from Verlo to our little guy getting a lion sleeping bag. Everything helps in the healing process.

We would like to thank the Red Cross – what a great organization. Thanks to the Family and Intercultural Resource Center and the Summit County government for all the help as well as the furniture and housing. Everybody made sure our immediate needs were met.

So many businesses went the extra mile to help us out. Summit Eyes made it so Mel didn’t have to walk around blind for too long. Target did so much to help. It truly went above and beyond.

Great Divide Furniture donated furniture. Winds of Change Book Store has also been phenomenal in all their help and support. Rags to Riches and Little Rags were also very kind and helpful.

We also want to thank Affordable Flooring for its help and efforts on our part.

We also want to say a special thanks to the many churches for their many efforts on our behalf.

We would be remiss not to give a special thanks to the Summit School District for its tireless efforts on our behalf. It has been so wonderful. It is good to work for an organization that cares so much for its employees and the children who attend its schools.

We hope we have forgotten no one. If we have inadvertently missed you here, please know we appreciate everything everyone has done for us.

Summit County is a great place and it’s each and every one of you that makes it that way. Thank you all!
