Ramirez/Marshall Family Devestation

Hurricane Harvey was a heavy hitter.  With the unprecendented amount of rainfall, and the bayou spilling my sister Lauren Ramirez, and husband Ruben Ramirez lost everything. I mean, EVERYTHING!  They have four children who are now out of school supplies, clothes, and are currently housed with me -shoeless. They did not have flood insurance as their house has never flooded before.  They are waiting for presidential delcaration to declare it as a natural disaster to be able to get something. Until then, and even after, they have remotely nothing besides each other. Their car, house, and clothes, shoes, posessions, kids toys- gone. They lost all school clothes, shoes, backpacks, and Zachary's worst nightmare-his school supplies. If you know Zachary, he has seizures,  and has had to wait on school. He is so devestated that he can't go to school, but even sadder he lost his supplies! 

My parents, and sister Shanna Soto have water waist deep.  Their house is also destroyed. Three cars totaled. They have nothing to start over with.  They have been stranded all day for 8 hours as their house flooded within a few hours of the third rainban.

Anything will help until Fema, insurance, and other claims arise. I am keeping them safe, and sound at my house until we figure out our next step.
