The Story

Butler, PA

Christine Manchester is a hardworking, devoted mother of six. Her family’s lives were changed forever when her husband passed away 2 years ago. The loss was indescribable, but the family found support in each other. Over time, they found a path of healing. “My children and I were finally getting our lives back to normal after the loss of their father,” said Christine. “I bought a house a little over a year ago.” They had a two-story home with a nice yard and plenty of space to grow and play. However, tragedy struck once more.

On December 9, 2017, Christine took her children over to her parents’ house. They stayed later than expected and spent the night to avoid a sleepy drive home. “Thank God we did,” Christine said. Shortly after midnight, she received a terrible phone call. Her home was burning. By the time she got there, her house was totally engulfed in flames. Christine and her children have been living with her parents since the fire. “The only thing we own is the clothes we had on that evening. We currently have nothing,” said Christine.

Life as single mother is tough enough. Christine works a full-time job to support her family, and she does her best to meet each of her children’s needs as a mother. She is eternally grateful for her family and their support. Her family is her rock. Christine is focused and determined to rebuild their life together and to put the past few years’ devastation behind them.

To afford the cost of the necessities lost in the fire, Christine chose RedBasket.org to host her fundraiser. She hopes to raise $10,000 to replace items that were destroyed in the fire. “I want my children to be able to continue being who they are and focus on being happy,” said Christine. “They are great kids and deserve happiness in their lives.”
