Albertson's Fire Damage Fund

My name is Maria and I'd like to take this opportunity to ask for your help in raising money for my dear friends, the Albertson Family.  They are the victims of a house fire which occurred when  lighting struck their home on June 8, 2016.
     Never could I have imagine that this awful accident would happen in our neighborhood, let alone it happening to our friends whom we consider our family.  Imagine being at schoo/work and hearing the thunder and lighting and suddenly hearing reports that a house nearby has caught fire.  Yes that is what happended to the Albertsons.  Sadly I was there watching as the fire engulfed their sons bedroom. Seeing him break down in tears as he saw his room, his goldfish, all that was valuable to him simply go up in flames.  And their middle daughter who was to graduate High School in a few short weeks, lost most of her belongings.  
    Thankfully no one was harmed during this fire but it certainly has had a tremendous emotional and financial  impact on the entire famiy.  The fire, which swept over their son's bedroom and the majority of their home, has left them displaced for several months.  My heart is heavy for them and their struggles and  and my family and I continue to try and provide all the support possible.
   I ask that you  help me raise money for the Albertson family to help them with the ensuing cost of repairs which continues to escalate.  Your thoughtfulness and generosity would be deeply appreciated.
