Help Grandkid's Rebuild a Home

Hello, My name is Joan Maresh Hansen. I am  the grandmother, "Nana" to two precious grandchildren who just lost their home. Ironically, our daughter kept asking if we were ok. They just moved from an apartment to an older home in Nederland, TX and we were right outside of Houston in Sugar Land. Later, we recieved a text from our  worried daughter ( a single Mother) who said the water was coming up to their house. The next  text informed us that water was coming into their house and they had to evacuate. Our daughter and  grandchildren (Kenleigh, 4, and Camden,8) returned  yesterday to find that 20" of water destroyed their home.  All of their furniture and their recently purchased car was lost. It breaks our heart. We cannot get there yet as roads are not open.
 Funds would be used for the following items needed  which are: Childrens' room furnishings, size 7-8 Boy's clothes, size 1-2 boys shoes, and size 5 , girls clothes and 11 girls' shoes.. A bedroom set for Mom, Living and dining room furnishings, Kitchen appliances, a  desk,chest of drawers, ( Used are fine as we can paint or polish them). Sheets, towels, etc.,  Immediate financial assistance  or used items  would be appreciated.
Many blessings to you and your families. Stay safe.
My heart goes out to all of the victims experiencing tragic loss due to Hurrican Harvey.  My prayers are with them.
