PLEASE HELP MY FAMILY! THEY LOST EVERYTHING!

As most locals of Berkeley Township may already know, a structure fire was reported in the early morning hours on October 30th,2019...Well that structure fire was my brother and his family's house went up in flames. They lost everything they had..Everything! And now they have to rebuild their lives with their 2 kids all over again,from scratch and with only the clothes on their backs! Those that were in the house made it out safe, however , my brother inhaled enough smoke to fill his lungs up after re-entering the house to save their family cat. He spent the next 36 hours being sedated and put on a ventilator in ICU. He is now in stable condition and off the ventilator, but after a CAT scan they saw that he had pneumonia (which explains his constant coughing and not feeling well in the last week or 2) and is being treated for that also. I want to thank everyone for all the support and prayers and ask to keep them coming because they need every bit of it as they figure out what to do next. I have gotten many messages all from neighbors, friends,family and the community wanting to make clothing donations,household donations and money,food and gift cards donations. All are being accepted and so much appreciated how ever right now they have no place to store big household items or furniture so once they have rehomed, an update will be available for anything needed. My goal for this GoFundMe is to help them regain clothing and a security deposit for a 3bdrm home and household items when needed. Please message me if you can help, share to show your support or make a donation to help regain a place to call home. Thank you all so much for all the support. If any of my realtor friends know of any inexpensive homes for rent without an immediate security, please let me know. possibly a winter rental for right now would be ok but yearly would be more sufficient to prevent having to move again so soon. Please share this GoFundMe! They will need everything all over and any amount,share and prayer will be so helpful! Clothing drop off locations will be in Bayville and in Barnegat. Please message me for the addresses. This page will be updated as we get closer to Christmas as they will most likely need help with gifts and food for their family!
