Kenny & Tina Knaps-Louisiana Flood
After he volunteered for the National Guard in 1983 to pay for college, Kenny was deployed to Iraq during Desert Storm. After the September 11 terrorist attacks, he did a one year tour in Afghanastan; he was also called to duty to help search and rescue survivors, and to help with the clean up and rebuilding efforts in New Orleans and surrounding areas in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Now Kenny and his family need your help. In late 2007 they opened an Anytime Fitness gym in Walker, Louisiana. Located in Livingston Parish, the area hit hardest by the flood, the gym had nearly 3 feet of water. Their home had 8 inches of water. While they clean-up and begin to rebuild, they have lost their source of income. With 75% of their client base suffering similar losses, their source of income from the gym is $0.
It would mean a lot to me to help my brother and his family who have given so much of themselves to serve the country and their community.
Thank you for time and your donation.
Thank you Charmaine for setting this up for us. We are busy with the recovery and our goal is to salvage as much as we can from the gym, pull out sheet rock/carpet/insulation etc.....reconstruct the gym and buy new equipment. The City of Walker is full of resilient people and we will be back stronger and better than ever. Thank you for your support.
