Krissy Small is a single mother and works as the GSRP (Great Start Readiness Program) Coordinator for Swartz Creek Community School at the Little Dragons Learning Center on Morrish Rd.

Neither Krissy nor her son was injured in the blaze, though they did reportedly have pet birds that it is safe to assume did not survive the incident, but that has not been confirmed.

Swartz Creek Family Loses Everything in Fire

Amanda Bendall is Krissy's coworker and has organized a GoFundMe for Krissy and her son. She praises her coworker for holding two jobs and giving everything she can to help the kids who are enrolled in the district's pre-school program.

"Krissy has always been a giver and she is a warm, compassionate, and a loving person. She works with children every day and the amount of love and kindness she shows to these families and kiddos is astonishing!"

Details of the GoFundMe can be seen here. At the time of this publication, more than $1,200 has been donated to help Small and her son.

Although donations of household goods and clothing have not been ruled out, Bendall says her friend currently has nowhere to store these donations. We'll share details about any further efforts to collect donations on this page as they become available.

Our thoughts are with Krissy and her son as they begin the task of recovering from their loss. Our thanks to Sally Renee McBride who shared the photo with us via Facebook, as she witnessed this event firsthand. The Swartz Creek community Facebook group rallied around her after hearing of this unfortunate event. Many know her in the area as she is an educator who has touched countless lives. We hope that she and her son will rebound from this unfortunate event very soon.
