Here’s the latest update on the Ewart Family. In the early morning on Tuesday, December 20th, fire destroyed their Valencia home. Six family members were in the house at the time, three were seriously injured and sent to the Grossman Burn Center. Last weekend, David Ewart was the final family member to be released from the Grossman Burn Center. Since the fire, our Valley has jumped in to assist as the Ewart’s recover. This is the latest update courtesy of neighbors, Josy and Steve Block.
Last night, we attended a most beautiful presentation from the EOPF (Environment of People Foundation) to David. As many of you know, David is a Board Member of the EOPF and they have been kind enough to offer folks the opportunity to make credit card or paypal donations to the Ewart Catastrophe Fund through their website. In a spiral-bound art book that was passed around the group, everyone signed their very sweet sentiments to the Ewarts, and included on one of the pages was a check in the amount of $33,000!!! David nearly fell off his chair!!! It was a very moving moment and everyone could feel the lump in his throat. Heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed to the Catastrophe fund via the EOPF. Donations are still welcome! (You can go to: www.eopf.org ). We will add some pictures to the website from last night.
