Charlene Townsend, my Aunt Char as I would call her lost everything in the tragedy Ellicott City, MD floods on 30 July 2016. Charlene was known as one of the oldest merchants in town. She was just recognized in the Baltimore Sun this year Celebrating her 50th anniversary of Maxine's Antiques down on Main Street. She was a all around wonderful women with a heart of gold. You were greeted every morning by Charlene and her dog Dandy Doodle Dude. Her store is completely gone and has lost everything. Charlene had stuff money couldn't buy. Stuff that was passed down from her mother and family when Maxine's Antiques doors opened for the first time. The whole town is completely gone and is in need of help. Charlene has not only lost her store but she has lost her income, sentamentals, and hope of recovering. Please take a chance to read over her story in the Baltimore Sun and donate what you can. Every penny counts when you are left with nothing. Insurence companies are fighting that it is a Act of God and not trying to cover anything. Please keep sharing this as in hope to raise money to get Maxine's Antiques open again ❤️
