West St. Louis County Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on May 9.
For our first give back, the Chamber chose a local west county family who had lost their home to a fire in early February 2019. They were also struck with a second fire when items they were storing were also destroyed in a storage facility fire. The family is the Morgan-Hopkins Family; husband, wife and five children. This month our members donated backpacks, gift cards, money, clothes and more to our West County Gives Back candidate.
Thank you letter from the Morgan-Hopkins Family to the West St. Louis County Chamber of Commerce:
West County Chamber of Commerce,
Thank you so much for the unexpected gifts and donations to our family during this tragedy. The amount of love and support from our community has been overwhelming. We have already used the shampoo and hair cut certificates, the back packs, clothes and gift cards. We can’t thank you enough. Every bit has helped. We are starting rebuilding now on our home and we can’t wait to get home.
Thank you so much and with much love,
The Morgan-Hopkins Family
