Harvey relief For Shannon

Hi, my name is Tommy, and I'm a disabled Veteran who resides in Conroe, Tx, about 30 miles north of Houston. I am raising money for our family friends Shannon and Travis. They were displaced by the flooding caused by Harvey, their house in North Houston was flooded and they lost all their possessions and both their vehicles. Funds are needed for down payments on 2 new or used  vehicles approximately $1000-$2000 each, both vehicles remain inoperable and prices of vehicles are expected to rise due to the loss of an estimated million vehicles being disposed by Harvey. Funds will be used for new appliances, such as a Refridgerator, Oven and freestanding range,  furniture such as living room set, beds, flooring, bathrooms(toilets, sinks, cabinets, counters), an electrician to go through the electrical, demo of detached garage, sheet rock, fireplace will need to be overhauled, treatment for mold, PPE for volunteers, there is so much work to be done and they have no insurance to cover anything. Also money will help to cover some of Travis and Shannons bills since they could not work for all of last week and do not qualify for disaster unemployment. Every bit helps, all donations will go straight to Shannons Bank account for withdrawal.
