Hello Friends:
For those who don't already know me, I am Stan Taylor. My wife Lyn Deadmore Taylor and I have lived and worked in Atlanta, GA for 23 years. 

Thank you for your time and any help extended to my Father and Sister -- who, like many, are struggling with recovering from the recent destruction of the WV flood.


RAINELLE, WV July 1, 2016

Sharing of this campaign with your friends, family and places of worship would really help. If you feel moved to contribute to this fundraising campaign, it is needed and greatly appreciated. ♥

Stan Taylor and Lyn Deadmore Taylor

Dad received a small amount of money from FEMA, thankfully (much less than was promised in their initial letter).

That money is almost spent -- leaving them sleeping on mattresses on unfinished wood. As of September 20th they not longer have to use the Port-o-Potty for their bathroom.  Yea!

-----------------------------------------------------------
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT TO ME?
There are some repairs underway and scheduled for the  near future, but funds will run out soon, and SAVE
assistance is urgently needed.  

It breaks my heart that my 89 year-old Father is living this way.  And I'm even more concerned about stress and his heart issues.

I want to help get their living situation back to normal as quickly as possible; understandably. It's been more than  3 months since the flood and displacement.

They ARE grateful to finally be back in their own home even unfinished!

 ♥ WHY THEY NEED YOUR HELP  ♥

-The initial amount FEMA promised was NOT what FEMA actually gave them.  Not enough to finish.
-Appeal to FEMA was denied. No reason given.
-Dad was unable to qualify for a small loan due to ID    Theft which affected his credit rating.
=====================================
 ♥ WHAT THEY NEED NOW ♥

(How your donation will be spent)
-Carpet and linoleum with installation - NEED NOW
-Kitchen Island replaced
-Kitchen sinks

-Bathroom repair
-Refrigerator
-Oven/Stove

======================================
INITIAL REMOVAL AND CLEAN-UP FINISHED
Besides damage to their home, of course they lost all major appliances, contents of the house & garage as well as their only car. Dad's car insurance helped with the car, thank goodness.

I'm sorry you didn't know about the federal food stamp program. Every person in the flooded areas was awarded $194 whether you were on the program or not. I wish I could help but Sis has no home or car and your story about FEMA is a familiar one. We've been told multiple stories about what documents we need and each time we deliver them we find they're not correct. FEMA is a nightmare.

Stan, David and I haven't had the pleasure of meeting you, but if you were in DC, we would surely take you and Lyn out to dinner. So, until then, I will donate to the fund for your family. My niece in Louisiana recently flooded and had been told that their area never flooded and so they didn't have flood insurance. I understand how much destruction a flood can cause. Good luck, Jane and David
