Marion, IL Basement Relief Fund

$3,645 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 37 people in 14 months
I’d like to introduce you to my parents.  My father is a retired machinist and a decorated Veteran and mom is a semi-retired insurance professional.  They are both God fearing Christians who look out for their family and don’t hesitate to help someone in need.  They live a modest life doing what they can to maintain, but now are in need of some help.

Recently, a wall in the basement of their home collapsed and the basement is full of dirt, mud and other debris.  Through the grace of God, the house is still standing.  So far, the furnace still functions, but has sustained damage and is also in need of repair.  Unfortunately, there is no easy or inexpensive remedy to this and we just found out the insurance company has denied the claim for repairs.

Friends and family have come together to help however they can, but without insurance coverage, we’re not able to make the home whole again without further assistance.  The basement is exposed to weather and other intrusions and is in desperate need of repair as soon as possible. 

I understand sometimes there is not enough help for everyone, but as long as I can remember, my parents have “paid it forward”, sometimes sacrificing some for themselves to ensure others are taken care of.  Mom always tells me “you have to bless others in order to receive your blessing”.    Please do what you can to help, not only to bless them, but to receive yours.  We are eternally grateful for your help.

We are truly thankful to each and every one of you for your generosity, donations, prayers and support. We also give thanks to an awesome God who has blessed us with His extravagant favor. We have been blessed with a contractor that will accept installment payments for the repairs, and the HVAC contractor discounted the furnace repair. Even if our goal is not met, your donations and prayers are a monumental factor to the repair of our home. Included in this update is a photo of the wall almost completed.
The wall is almost complete! Thank God!

Thank you to all who have sent donations and prayers, they are very much appreciated. Some have sent donations and prayers anonymously, but God knows who you are and He knows your heart.  The contractor is also blessing us and is willing to accept installment payments for the repair work! God is good!

The contractor has completed the excavation and the footing was finished on Tuesday. The wall is under construction now. It will be a few weeks before all the repairs are completed. We will continue to post updates as we go. Thank you all again and may God bless all of you!
