GoFundMe campaign launched for Tofino family after fire destroys home and vehicle

“This family is feeling very overwhelmed.”

The West Coast is rallying around Tofino’s Milliken family after a fire destroyed their home and vehicle in the early morning hours of Dec. 4.

A GoFundMe page has been set up and had reached $3,125 at 10 a.m. Wednesday morning, just 20 hours after the page was created.

The page notes that the family has insurance, but it will take several months for things to come through.

“This family is feeling very overwhelmed. Calvin and Krystal have lived and worked in Tofino for 10 years and Berlin is in grade 4 at the local school,” the page states. “In addition to donating funds this family is looking for somewhere to live in Tofino. They need a home to rent for up to 8 months.”
