On August 19, the MacDonald family of Scottsdale, including parents Scott and Elizabeth and Scottsdale Christian Academy student Emma and Logan, tragically lost their home and all personal possessions in a house fire.

While they are safe, their involvement in multiple communities across multiple geographies has sparked an outcry of individuals who want to help. A GoFundMe has been set up for those who are able to donate,  while gift cards are also being accepted (to restaurants, fast food, Target, Kohl's, Nordstrom, grocery stores, Grub Hub, etc.) on behalf of the family. Scottsdale Christian Academy is also asking the community to pray for the MacDonald family to cope with the loss.
