Lost Home In Irma - Please Help

This is Wendy's daughter. While she doesn't want to ask for help, we know that she needs it. Unfortunately, her home of almost 30 yrs is almost completely destroyed. She is devastated of course. Most people don't know that we basically lived in a camper trailer before she was able to buy this home. She was a single mom who worked hard to achieve 'the American dream' and now it is gone. Today we begin the long/sad process of salvaging what we can. People have asked how they can help and we are ever so grateful! There will be a lot of out of pocket expenses involved. If you can donate anything please do so here. If you can't donate cash below is a list of what we still need, if you or someone you know or any businesses can help:-Damp rid. LOTS of damp rid for the items we can salvage and put in storage. -Boxes or bins-Bubble wrap or tissue paper or news papers to wrap items -Packing tape-Dry towels- Large garbage bags, maybe the construction kind?-People willing to help pack and move smaller items today and tomorrow that we are able to salvage. The more people we have the quicker it will go.- Moving company to move the larger items and any furniture that is salvageable to storage room.-Company to remove large tree that fell and is currently laying where the back part of her home used to stand-People or a company to help clean up that area once tree is removed. We are talking walls, roof, flooring, and personal items, (salvaging what we can.) -General Contractor to assess damage and repair/replacement costs. We have called multiple companies and contractors for the water damage and clean up but they just take our information and put us on a list. We know that mold spreads quickly so this is not something that we can just take our time with. Every minute might mean that something else that can no longer be saved that could have been had we got it out sooner. Please let me or her know if you are able to help with any of the above. Thanks and God bless!
