Jim Davis and his mnother Jean were the victims a devastating hous fire

The remains of Jim Davis and his mother Jean's home on Tertiary Road off Old Prince George Highway.

All that remains of Jim Davis and his mother Jean’s home on Tertiary Road off Old Prince George Highway is twisted metal and scorched ground. The home went up in flames recently and the mother and son were left homeless. As there was no insurance, friends of the family are rallying around the Davis’ to help them rebuild as soon as possible. They are in the midst of establishing temporary residence on the property and hope to have a new home as soon as they can.

Jean Davis is in her 70s and mostly in a wheelchair while her son Jim, who lives with and helps take care of his mother, is recovering from recent knee surgery.

There are two ways the public can assist this family including donations to the Parkland Community Association’s Credit Union account, specifying the money is for the Fire Relief Fund in Jim Davis’ name. Secondly, a internet site youcaring.com/jimdavis-712624 is accepting donations as well.

Jim has indicated to friends and family they are in need mostly of building materials and labour to help them rebuild their lives.
