Hello, I just started a gofundme to help support oscars tires, which was the casualty of the a fire on 11/17. The building and everything inside was a total loss. Also, leaving 7 people without a job. Oscar is my step dad, and I personally know everyone that has been effected by this. I’m reaching out to see if you’re able to share the gofundme campaign and help spread the word? Thank you in advance. Thanks, Adam Peterson
