On the afternoon of Friday April 23rd a House Fire Broke out in North Eastern Pennsylvania. Four kayakers and river guides lost nearly everything. Thankfully only one boat was lost (a Pyranha playboat), but other losses of gear and personal belongings are staggering. Please help Mark, Leigh, Joe, and Amanda recover from this devastating event. They are in need of gear to continue perusing a common passion for the river as well as the guiding profession.
All four victims are employed as river guides/safety boaters on the Lehigh River in North Eastern, Pennsylvania.
If you can't donate gear, please donate what you can monetarilly so this crew can get back up on their feet ASAP!!
Used and extra gear for the summer season is most greatly appreciated and can be sent to Jackie and Brad's house in Lake Harmony at (UPS and FedEx):

Any donations can be sent to Leigh's parents house at (USPS):
