Stephanie Shepler  INDIANAPOLIS, IN
Hey everyone. My name is Stephanie. I am setting up this fundraiser for my sister Shelly and her 3 kids. They recently moved into a rental house that they did not realize was infested with black mold. This has caused them to have to move and leave everything (even the clothes off of their backs) behind. I know it is Christmas time and a lot of people may not be able to help financially, but any used clothing for the children or my sister would be greatly appreciated as well - if you are able.


Shelly - size small or medium ladies tops, size 6 pants, shoe size 8 Morganne (10) - size 12-14 in girls, shoe size 5
Sammy (8) - size 10 in boys, shoe size 5
Spencer (5) - size 6/7 in boys, shoe size 2


They are also in desperate need of kitchen items, linens, and basically anything else needed for a home. We appreciate any and all help!


If you would like to donate via paypal as a gift (free)- please private message me.

Thanks to so many generous friends and family members and even complete strangers, we have exceeded our fundraising goal and collected enough used furniture donations to almost completely furnish my sister and her children's new rental home. Clothing, linens, dishes, TVs, towels, and several other items were donated from all over the Indianapolis area, as well as the Tiffin, Ohio area from the most selfless people we have ever met!

Our Howl at the Moon Party
pack is still taking bids until Friday, but as of right now the top bid is from Ryan Sanchez of Indianapolis for $200!!! Thank you so much Ryan!

From the bottom of our hearts and with more gratitude than you can possibly imagine, we are going to have an amazingly blessed Christmas and want to thank you all again! Happy Holidays!

Everything is set up to pick up the box truck this week and travel around Indianapolis picking up furniture and other items to take to the Holt family on Sunday!

Big shout out to Adrienne Donnella and her husband Rick for allowing us to use their box truck to make this trip!

Also want to say thank you to Jack Shepler, Breanna Ramsey, Amanda Patrick, Heather Fleetwood, Lisa Kemp-Williams, Trevor Smith and Christy Gleason for all of the furniture and other items they have donated!!

Cheeky Chic photography ran a fundraising event and raised $200 to pay for the gas to make this 8 hour round trip drive!! Thank you so much Katie James. You are not only an amazing photographer, but also a very generous woman and an awesome friend!

Thank you again to everyone who has donated items and money to help my family get back on their feet! We are a little over half way to our goal. If you can donate anything - even $5, we would greatly appreciate your help!

Made our first trip to drop off donated items to the Holt family. They are so grateful! We will be making our next trip tentatively December 19th or 20th. We have a couch being donated by Stephen Crumly, a recliner by Tera Henschen, 2 twin/full beds by Maxine Lindle and I am providing a kitchen table and chairs! So exciting for this family!!! We have had several people donate several other items as well. Now we will be focusing on items such as dishes, washer & dryer, pots & pans, and toys. We are hoping that we can raise enough money for the family to pick out & purchase a lot themselves. Thank you all again so much for your support, thoughts, prayers, and donations! We are truly blessed to be surrounded by such selfless amazing people. Happy Holidays!

I unfortunately do not have any money to donate at this time, but I am sure I have some household items I can definitely give to them. If you could please email me at dmkemp.indy@gmail.com and let me know how I can go about donating the items. I will be leaving work here in about 3 hours and will go straight home and see what I can donate. Thanks and I wish you all the best.
