Fire Took Everything They Owned

My daughter's best friend's house burned today. The family survived, however, they lost EVERYTHING, including their beloved pets (3 dogs). The mom (Tonya) is my friend and a fellow miniature enthusiast. She also has Lupus and is in the hospital with a couple of broken ribs sustained during the fire. I don't think they have medical or renters insurance.The family consists of mom, dad, 2 sons and a daughter. As of today they are homeless and only have the clothing they were wearing when the fire broke out.Any amount you can donate with help this family to survive the winter and begin to rebuild their lives.If you are unable to make a donation, please say a prayer for this family as they have suffered so much hardship in the last few years. Last Spring they lost one of their daughters to an accidental overdose and a few years ago lost a son in a shooting incident. Thank you and God Bless you my friends!
