The community of fandom is like a big family and when one of your family is in need you step up. Family House does that every day to families in our community, and for our store this is an opportunity to join with them in our own way, while at the same time letting our fandom community participate and be involved” When Kyle took over the business in 2017, he brought his passion for community to the forefront by engaging the fandom community in ways that enabled them to give back to their community.
