On June 19th at 1:00am, my inlaws home( Lou and Debbie Orzech) was struck by lightening and went up in flames. The house was totaled in minutes but we were able to get all 7 people out of the home unharmed. Four people(my father in law, mother inlaw, sister in law and niece) were displaced due to the fire. Any donations would help as they try to rebuild their lives. Thank you for your support!

Many people have contacted me about clothing, furniture, etc. All donations can be taken to 5 Bogby Court 21220. Almost everything in the house was either taken by the fire, water damage, or smoke damage.

As for clothing:
Female size med., size 5 pant and shoe 7 1/2
Female size l/xl, size 12/14 pant and shoe 7 1/2
Male size xl, size 38 pant and shoe 9 1/2
Female child size 12 and shoe 5 1/2

Valarie, my niece loves books, peace signs and is a "girly girl".

Furniture and household donations are appreciated as well. I am in the process of trying to set up some kind of storage unit for items donated.

We are all unbelieveably overwhelmed by your genorosity. Words can not express how grateful we are. Many people have expressed they have clothing donations. Our neighbor Kelly at 5 Bogby Court has graciously offered her home as a place to drop off donations over the weekend. Please feel free to message me on Facebook if this is not convienant for you and we can make arrangements. Thank you all!
