Kilmarnock Fire Relief Fund
As many know, our peaceful community in Kilmarnock was recently turned upside down on April 19th, 2022 with a devastating fire. This unimaginable event not only destroyed local businesses but displaced members of our community and took everything they owned. Tragically, this fire also took the life of a community member; our thoughts and prayers are with this family today, tomorrow and forever. The compassion and generosity that has been shown by this community is admirable and Kilmarnock is truly a special place to live and call home.
Here is information on how you can help!
