Connors Hurricane Irma Recovery

Hello friends and family, I come to you all in a time of need, this is very hard for my parents to even come to terms with. I finally after a few days of reasoning was able to get my parents to allow me to make this go fund me account, they are not the type of people to ask for handouts, in fact they are the type of people who give to EVERYONE, and anyone who knows them personally know this about them! They give and give even when they are in no position to give, it's just the type of people they are, they are loyal and would drop everything and anything to help their friends and family and even a stranger. Now it's our time to give back to them, as many of you know before hurricane Irma even hit half of their roof was torn off of their manufactured home with still a ton of wind and rain yet to come, they evacuated to our home and are safe, but their kitchen and living room are pretty flooded. It is not liveable . The cost to repair the roof and floor damage etc.. is more than what it is worth and they have the funds, health or time for, so they have decided to find a new home, they did find one but it will not be ready for a few weeks and they are staying at our home until then. The costs of moving into a new place is very expensive i.e. Deposits first and last, moving truck and they also have to pay rent at their current lot rent until they can either give away the home or pay a few thousand to have it removed. So I am asking for all your help, anything helps. And everything is appreciated. This couple have the biggest hearts of anyone I know and would and have given us the shirts off their backs, let's relieve some stress for them! They have applied with FEMA and I will update if they are approved!! $10,000 sounds like a lot and it is and we do not expect all of that it is just a goal, but most of that would go to just removing the mobile home they are liable, if you have any questions or concerns please call me personally and I can answer them for you! Thank you.
