The Powers Family Flood Fund

This sweet family was one of many who experienced the devastating effects  from the massive flooding in Columbia, SC on the morning of October 4th, 2015.  

Jay and Lauren Powers were woken up to water filling their new home on Milford Road and quickly grabed their two young children, Jamison and Caroline, their dog Spurrier, and put them on their shoulders to swim to their neighbors home for safety.  They moved in to their home less than three months ago and have lost so much.  

Please help my cousin and his family as they try to get back on their feet and sort through all of this devastating mess.  We will be giving all raised funds directly to the family as soon as possible.

Thank you for your continued prayers and help as we begin to rebuild this community.
