Help rebuild from hurricane Harvey

Hi to all! My name is Tammy.  I live in Maine and am a high school classmate of Mary's. I am writing and creating a gofundme account on behalf of Robbie and Mary (Crawford) Welch.  Their home is one of the many that has been impacted by hurricane Harvey.  I have been in touch with Mary and she has humbly given me permission to set up this account on their behalf.  Never in a million years would she ever have imagined herself saying "yes, we could use the help". The photo you see posted is a recent picture of where she lives.  Even with the blue skies and water beginning to receed, they are still waiting to be able to get into their home and really see what damage lies ahead.  What they do know is that furniture, floors, walls, insulation, etc...will need to be torn out and replaced.  As with many others, they are devestated.  They have a long road ahead of rebuilding, but with the help of family, friends and even strangers, we  can help make a difference and lighten their load. The money raised will be used to buy food, necessities, and go toward the cost of drying out their home, cleaning, and rebuilding/replacing what has been damaged. No donation is too small and will help for this family and repair the damage to their home.  They are safe right now and able to live with Robbie's family and for that they are very thankful.  

I've been following her story and reading her FB posts. My heart goes out to her and others and I'm simply setting up this account because it's a way to help in her time of need.  I encourage those of you who see this post to give.  If giving online concerns you, then you can contact me  and I can get you and address of where you can send Robbie and Mary something personally.  

I thank you all in advance for any help you can give and I know they do as well.  We CAN make a difference one life at a time. God bless. 

P.S. Mary is listed as the "beneficiary" of this gofundme account and all funds will go directly to her.
