Pakel Family home destroyed #Harvey

I'm Barb Ozminkowski, from upstate New York.  My sister Diane Pakel, her husband Pat, and daughter Michelle lost their home and car to hurricane Harvey in Katy, Texas. They have always been there for anyone in need. Now it's their turn to need help from others.
 They have to rent a house and a car, in addition to paying their mortgage and all work that will have to be done on their home.  They lost all of their clothes, furniture, household and kitchen items because the majority of the rooms are on the first floor, which has had 3 feet of water for over a week.
